Here’s what educators are saying about our program:

My students could not believe that lawyers would actually take the time to come to our school and talk to them. It was obvious to me that they were very impressed with the presentations. I think one could tell from their questions that this was the case. They wanted to see the relevancy to their own personal situations.

Personal finance is critically important for young people to understand these days. Our students do not realize how quickly they will be expected to be responsible for their own financial future. Having young professionals like yourself relate to them your personal experiences was a successful approach which made the information more credible. I would highly recommend this program to any high school teacher. The comments my students made in their written evaluations were positive and insightful. They benefited greatly and were thinking seriously about their futures.

The teachers were certainly complimentary of the content that you covered, finding it most interesting and useful in their classes this year as we implement the new state requirements for personal financial literacy. I appreciate the time you took to plan, prepare and present this valuable information to our teachers. It is wonderful that we can count on community support in this new program. Thank you.
