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

You NEED to take this class. I’ve taken a lot of classes on Co-Pilot, and this was the best. Karl really took the time to help all of us better understand our financial choices and how we could make the most of what we have. He’s an incredible resource and I couldn’t have been happier with this class.

Best Co-pilot class I have taken so far. Karl has found the most relevant resources for educators. This class should be required by all districts when you start teaching!
Kimberly Insana
This class is fantastic! Any educator, but especially those who are just starting out should take this class. As a younger teacher none of this was taught to me. I have learned so much in this course about the benefits PERA offers to you and what you should be taking advantage of! TAKE THIS CLASS!
