The IBAT Education Foundation created The IBAT Teach the Teacher Program™ in 2011 to address the national financial literacy problem on a local level, by connecting local community bankers, teachers, schools and students. Community banker involvement in the program is crucial not only in providing the program in the community, but also to create a follow-up mentorship program that keeps improving the commnity over time. The Foundation is working tandem with TEA service regions to move this important program to each of the 20 regions.
- Six-hour workshop using presentations and interactive exercises;
- Approved for six hours of Texas Education Agency (TEA) continuing education credit;
- Aligned with personal finance TEKS and STAAR graduate testing standards;
- Developed by teachers for teachers.
The IBAT Teach the Teacher Program™ provides instructional methods, games and fun confidence builders to show teachers ways to engage students in matters of credit scores, saving, budgeting, spending, debit, credit card awareness, investments, insurance, taxes and identity theft.
