My Classroom Podcast Special Edition: The Two Cents Couple
Welcome to a Special Edition of My Classroom, a short NGPF podcast series devoted to supporting the efforts of educators. We typically speak with classroom teachers who share timely tips, resources, and teaching strategies that can be implemented immediately into the classroom.
However, we couldn’t pass up on the opportunity of sharing a recording of our Speaker Series with Philip Olson and Julia Lorenz-Olson, the Two Cents couple.
Two Cents is released weekly on PBS and are short and engaging videos that focus on personal finance tips and tricks. As of mid-November 2021, we have turned 70 Two Cents videos into EdPuzzles that teachers can use in their classrooms. You can find each of these in our Video Library by typing “Two Cents” in the search bar as shown below:
Hear their story, the inspiration for the Two Cents videos, some of their personal favorites, and much more. Enjoy the show!
