Why We Do What We Do
What a great way to start a Tuesday! We received this email overnight:
“Stumbled upon your website in January as I’m currently teaching a brand new Economics and Personal Finance at a high school in Honolulu, Hawaii. Absolutely love your units, lessons and activities and how you are willing to share for free!! I cannot thank you enough for developing all this AWESOME curriculum and sharing with teachers so freely!!”
You have to love the internet and how it enables small organizations like NGPF to have national (and even global) reach. We strive to develop content that teachers can “stumble upon” and implement in their classrooms quickly and effectively. We also love hearing how we can better serve you, so please keep the feedback coming!
About the Author
Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
