Class Experience

Students will understand what it means to Pay Yourself First and why it's important. They'll be able to identify the types of savings and investment accounts available and they'll understand the difference between credit and debit cards.
I am credentialed in the state of California to teach middle and high school students. I was trained in and have taught AVID, a college and career preparation course, and I spent several years teaching various subjects including English, Creative Writing, Drama, Yearbook, Life Science and was a regular substitute for Trigonometry, Biology, History, Art and other classes. I am excellent at managing money and worked and paid my way through all 4 of my college degrees, so I'm very capable of helping students prepare for the financial responsibilities of college and adulting.

The curriculum was created by Junior Achievement, a non-profit youth organization founded over 100 years ago whose goal is to make all students financially literate. Their lessons in financial literacy, work and career readiness, and entrepreneurship are shown to positively impact the lives of young people. These lessons align with national and state educational standards.
All handouts will be uploaded for students to fill out online (the documents are compatible with Google Chrome and Adobe, but they can also fill out using Preview on a Mac) Students can also print the documents before class and fill them out by hand if that works best for them. If the documents are printed, students will need a pen or pencil. If using a pen I recommend also having white out tape and if using a pencil I recommend having an eraser and pencil sharpener handy. Students will be given access to Finance Park by JA's administrators during Unit 5.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will have their handouts filled out prior to class ending and be able to explain the information on them.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
In order to participate in the virtual simulation where the students will create a household budget using hypothetical life situations and make spending, saving, and investment decisions, they'll need to have an email address that is used by the administrators of Junior Achievement to grant them access.
The videos and handouts are from Junior Achievement Finance Park.
