A Professional Banker's Secrets for Teachers

Here are some great ways to resonate with your students on the topic of financial literacy…

Keep it real! Wherever possible, use real-life examples to illustrate everyday money management.

Share stories. The best money learning comes from discussions and experience.

Use real financial language. Understanding money vocabulary early helps kids navigate the financial world as adults.

Discuss the consequence of money choices. Every money decision you make has a reaction, positive or negative.

Highlight true costs. Students should have money knowledge that is current and relevant to the economy.

Money should not be a taboo topic. Talk openly with your students.

Have fun with it! Who doesn’t like dreaming about the future?
