Financial Educators

While not technically part of the coalition itself, teachers are on the “front lines” of the financial literacy effort and are responsible for a good deal of its success. And each month we highlight their success in our Teacher Spotlight.

Today, personal finance is being taught as a standalone course or incorporated into other subject matter in public, private and charter schools across the country, at every level from preschool to post-secondary.

The Jump$tart Coalition—along with our national partners and state affiliates—is proud to support these dedicated and talented professionals.

J$FFE Teacher Advisors
