DE PERE – Kerri Herrild, a business teacher at De Pere High School will be learning from the best at an upcoming national summit.
Next Gen Personal Finance, a financial education non-profit, is hosting its second annual summit in San Francisco, from March 15-17.
The Changemaker Summit brings together 100 personal finance educators from high schools in 36 states who are passionate and motivated to improve financial education in their community in the next 18 months.
Herrild is one of those educators selected to attend.
The highlights of the weekend program will include:
• Sessions to provide educators with new resources and ideas on how to deliver personal finance lessons in their classrooms.
• Teacher-led sessions to showcase the progress of increasing access to personal finance education nationwide and to support educators as they advocate for an increase in personal finance education in their community.
• Investing panel discussion with best-selling authors Jonathan Clements and Bill Bernstein.
• Opportunities for teachers to collaborate during multiple sessions.
“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to host such a talented and passionate group of educators for our Changemaker Summit,” said Tim Ranzetta, co-founder of Next Gen Personal Finance. “While 90 percent of students and parents believe that personal finance should be taught in high school, only 16 percent currently get it. This inspiring group of Changemakers will close that gap.”
