Innovative Educators

Each month, we honor an educator who has found new and exciting ways to help children and adults gain financial literacy skills. Coming from all over the country and teaching throughout the grade levels and beyond, they’re our Innovative Educators.

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.

Congratulations to the recipients of the Practical Money Skills Innovative Educator Sponsorship to attend the annual Jump$tart Coalition National Educator Conference on November 6-8 at the Gaylord Resort in National Harbor, MD.
