About the Course

Being an educator is a very difficult job. It’s even more difficult if you’re worried about your personal financial situation. Many educators are confused and/or intimidated by finances, and “don’t know what they don’t know”. This stress can’t help but impact their job performance. So this class is designed to not only make a difference in your personal lives, but if it can help you relieve that stress, it will make you even better educators and do an even better job of meeting the needs of our students in these challenging times. This class will also help prepare you to better teach the Colorado Academic Standards for K-12 Personal Financial Literacy (PFL). It is also likely that you will learn something that will more than cover the cost of this course!

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Identify the most important financial decisions necessary in order to live a life aligned with their values and goals.
  • Understand, appreciate, and be able to calculate the time value of money.
  • Understand, appreciate, and be able to calculate the effect of fees on investment returns.
  • Develop and implement a personal financial action plan.
  • Grade(s): Pre-K Kindergarten 1st Grade 2nd Grade 3rd Grade 4th Grade 5th Grade 6th Grade 7th Grade 8th Grade 9th Grade 10th Grade 11th Grade 12th Grade Elementary K-5 Secondary 6-12

Everyone should take this class! Mr. Fisch is knowledgable and supportive. The assignments allowed us to reflect on our personal finance (habits) and the resources provided gives us an opportunity to extend our own learning, well beyond the class.
Laura Schachet
This class is great for beginners looking at financial independence for the first time and those with financial planning and investing experience. Students will learn ways to better invest their money and will leave with a game plan and goals to guide them in their journey to financial independance.

This is an incredibly helpful class for ALL members of the educational field. I learned so much and was pushed on what I thought I understood. I have already made changes to my financial planning in order to grow towards financial independence. Karl is an incredible instructor and very involved in helping educators make the most of their financial decisions. Highly recommend!
