Master Teacher of Personal Finance

DescriptionThe Master Teacher in Personal Finance (MTPF) program is designed to provide middle and high school teachers with the personal finance content necessary to teach a high school personal finance course or to incorporate the topic into other courses.  This session of the program is designed specifically for special education teachers.  In addition to content instruction, teachers will learn about a variety of high-quality resources they can use to teach the content in the classroom. The content and classroom resources are aligned with National Standards for Financial Literacy produced by the national Council for Economic Education. Teachers that pre and post-test their students using MCEE provided tests will make their students eligible for $50 ABLE savings accounts, funded by the MS Council on Developmental Disabilities. This program is offered as a collaboration between the Mississippi Council on Economic Education, the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, Treasurer’s Education About Money (TEAM) and the Mississippi Department of Education. Teachers who successfully complete the program will receive a $250 stipend.
