Beating the odds – that’s what we live and breathe at NLA. With that mindset, Mrs. McNamara, our Financial Literacy teacher, submitted an application to the Next Gen Personal Finance (NGPF) Summer Institute.  We are happy to report that Lady Mac, as she is known here, was invited as one of only 12 teachers nationwide [editor’s note: NGPF is hosting two sessions, each with 12 teachers, this summer in Palo Alto] to the all expenses paid June event in Palo Alto, California.

NGPF Podcast: Tim Talks to Passionate and Creative Educator, Andrea Stemper of Palmer High School (CO)

Andrea-150x150

Thanks to Andrea Stemper of Palmer High School in Colorado Springs for the great conversation that we had recently. I got to know Andrea last summer at the inaugural NGPF Summer Institute. I was impressed by her passion and creativity as she shared lots of great activity ideas that she developed for her students. In fact, we turned one of those ideas into an activity “Let’s Make A Mutual Fund” for our new Teach Investing in Two Hours lesson (see Resource #7 for the activity). In this podcast, you will hear Andrea’s process for developing new projects, how she has advocated for financial education in her community and the message she would like for her all of her students to walk away with after taking her course. Enjoy!
