Mrs. V. from Omaha NE is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

Teaching Financial Literacy in Fourth Grade: a Teacher PD Library

I need professional development for teaching financial literacy in the form of literature so that I can educate myself as I continue to develop my understanding of how best to teach financial literacy.

My Students

Students in the "Highest Poverty" category, often do not have opportunities to follow their dreams. I am all about making the impossible possible and their dreams for the future an obtainable reality. My students come from countries around the world. They have traveled from Africa, Asia, South America, and across North America, as children of refugees and families that move frequently, due to low-income earning ability. The unique and difficult experiences of my students are what make my students some of the most powerful and determined young minds you could ever hope to meet.

My students have experienced adversity.

In our classroom, we rise above it. My students are resilient and brilliant. They have incredible leadership abilities. They help each other and understand the power of teamwork. We build a classroom community and care for each other. When one student succeeds, they all celebrate the success achieved by their classmate. These bonds are forged with time, shared tribulation, and the universal truth that every single student in our class has enormous potential.

My Project

As a fourth grade teacher, I am aware that many of our students are already deciding on who or what they will become. With little to no financial education (critical thinking about money/finance is not part of the required curriculum), these students may be left in the dark.

All the buzz about financial education has encouraged me to reflect on developing lessons to incorporate across the curriculum.

This small but mighty collection of books will help me create my own PD on how to better teach financial literacy. I will pass this learning on to my colleagues- and fourth grade will be the first to teach financial literacy in what I hope will be a chain reaction of money management skills acquired by our students through teachers self-guided-study.
