As a former Investment Banker and certified Business Education Teacher,  I love teaching Stock Marketing Investing!  My experience in the industry gives me a deep knowledge of stock analysis and the process of buying and selling stocks.   My students always enjoy playing the Stock Market Simulation and competing with me along with their classmates.   This stock market class is fun and engaging and knowing how to invest is an important life skill.  Investing responsibly in the stock market is the best way to grow savings and build cash reserves.   That's why it's critical for young adults to learn how invest responsibly now, BEFORE they risk real money.   

Based on my extensive experience teaching this subject, I know how to make it interesting and memorable.  I use video clips and engaging handouts to make the content  easy to understand and remember.  This class is interactive, not lecture based, so students will have the opportunity to discuss, share experiences, and ask questions.  I will help students discover how current events effect stock prices so they are more interested the world around them.
Homework Offered
