"Old School Basics for New School Students"

February 23, 2018

Many things have changed in the world in the past few decades. Technology has transformed almost every area of our lives. While Personal Finance is no exception in this fast-changing world, some of the foundational skills needed to keep on top of your money are still vital. Thanks to support from Great Western Bank, my Personal Finance class is able to learn the basics of writing checks, filling out a check register, and reconciling your bank statements. Packets are provided that allow students to use real-life financial transactions to keep track of their money. There are many new Apps and Web sites that have changed the way we keep track of money, but to become productive members of society our students still need to know the timeless basics.
