Each month, we honor an educator who has found new and exciting ways to help children and adults gain financial literacy skills. They’re our Innovative Educators, and they come from all over the country, teaching throughout the grade levels and beyond.
We share their experience here to provide educators and students with good ideas for teaching and learning about money. Hopefully, you’ll find something inspirational in these stories that you can use in your own work.
And if you know of or are an innovative educator yourself, please submit a nomination form. We’re eager to speak with individuals who have found creative ways to teach the fundamental lessons of finance.
Visa Inc.'s Practical Money Skills is pleased to announce six recipients of the sponsorship to attend the Jump$tart Coalition National Educator Conference in Washington D.C., on November 1-3, 2013. Learn more
