My Students

The MCR3 school district is located in a rural, central Missouri farming community. The district serves approximately 260 students K-12. I see elementary and middle school students each week on a fixed schedule, each class is 50 minutes. Students may also visit the library during open library times. High school students visit the high school library on an open schedule. I also collaborate with high school teachers on a regular basis. When I am occupied with duties in either library, students are served by my certified paraprofessional.

As a school librarian in a small, rural school district, I'm constantly looking for ways to expand my students' world view.

Any additional resources help to achieve this goal. Resources may be used as activities in the library or shared with teachers through the classroom or collaboration with myself.

My Project

Many financial experts have written resources specifically for children and teens. I am requesting Larry Burkett's books Money Matters for Kids and Money Matters for Teens, David and Tom Gardner's book The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens, Suze Orman's book The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous, and Broke, and Dave Ramsey's picture book set, Junior's Adventures.

Teaching financial literacy skills like budgeting, good credit, and debit management will increase my students ability to be financially savvy adults.

This project also includes several board games (Mastering Math Games Library, Learning Resources Money Bags Coin Value Game, and Dave Ramsey's ACT Your Wage! Board Game) that will reinforce the financial literacy skills being taught
