Financial Foundations for Educators
An informative and entertaining two-day course for teachers to gain confidence and expertise about their own personal finances, preparing them to teach the same to their students.
Financial experts from around the state will address spending and financial planning; credit and debt; saving and investing; risk management including identify fraud and handling difficult financial stresses. Each section will also highlight examples of effective classroom materials that can be integrated into many K-12 subject areas.
Hundreds of teachers have taken personal finance workshops sponsored by Jump$tart and its partners in the last few years. In follow-up surveys, 95% of teacher respondents have improved their own personal finances, and 75% have incorporated financial concepts from the workshop into their classrooms.
A registration fee of $75.00 will be paid to LACOE and includes professional development, continental breakfast and lunch. If the teacher attends both days of learning, the registration fee will be refunded by California Jump$tart. In addition, teachers will earn $100 per day of full-day attendance.
Raffle: Gift cards and personal financial literacy classroom materials will be raffled throughout the day. An iPad-mini will be raffled at end of the workshop.
Deadline to register: JUNE 8TH, 2018
