Feature1Educators Celebrated at the 2015
Jump$tart National Educator Conference 

Financial educators from around the nation gathered together last weekend in Maryland for the 2015 Jump$tart National Educator Conference.


NEFE is proud to sponsor this conference which provides educators with opportunities for professional development, to share ideas with fellow educators, to learn about resources, and become inspired.


Laura Levine, Jump$tart president and CEO, set the tone for the weekend saying, "I wish the world understood teachers exhibit unparalleled dedication to making it a better place."


For educators who were not able to attend this year, the following newsletter articles contain just some of the many conference highlights.

MoneyTeachJump$tart Highlight: Announcing MoneyTeach.org

Mike Staten, Take Charge America Institute Director at the University of  Arizona, introduced the educators to MoneyTeach.org, a joint project of NEFE and the Take Charge Am erica Institute. Money Teach is an online portal to noncommercial resources from a variety of providers and a forum to discuss what works and what doesn't.

MathJump$tart HighlightMath That Makes ¢ents

Dr. Julie Heath, Director at the Economics Center at the University of Cincinnati, presented Math That Makes ¢ents at the Jump$tart conference.

Math That Makes ¢ents is a compilation of 60 lessons that integrate personal finance "big ideas" and standards-based, grade-level math. The integrated approach allows the most efficient use of classroom time, and also models critical thinking and decision-making skills that form the "big ideas" at the core of all financial education classes. 


Do you use technology to teach personal finance? Or do you feel lightyears behind?
