Students will experience actual financial situations with hands-on activities to learn how to manage virtual checking, savings and credit card accounts, invest, pay bills on time and spend wisely. Most adults, including myself, wish they had learned about managing their money in school and this program aims to do that. I'm so excited to add this interactive transformational tool to the classroom and have us all reap the benefits of a more financially literate future for our students.

My areas of expertise and certification include Kindergarten through 6th grade teacher, 7th and 8th grade all four core areas, Gifted and Talented Teacher and Director of Education, Special Education Grades 4 through 12 specialist as well as building principal for PreK through 8th grade. During Covid shutdowns and quarantines I discovered that my students and I loved the online platform. I taught in a one to one school. Every student had a laptop as well as a school hotspot if their family asked for one. I chose not to do the minimum "office hours" as my school required. I felt this did not meet my students' needs. I ran an online classroom during regular school hours as well as recorded the class for those students who were unable to connect with us or needed to hear the lesson more than once. My experience as a principal resulted in greatly improved learning for all students. The gifted students improved as well as those with learning disabilities. I believe in high expectations for all. High expectations that are attainable 🍎Mrs. Pope - Hello! My name is Mrs. Pope and I specialize in Typing classes for the Apples2Zippers organization on Outschool.
