High school teachers from the Amarillo Independent School District and other area school districts are invited to attend the upcoming April 14, 2012 IBAT Teach the Teacher Program at West Texas A&M University. The six hour program is made possible by the IBAT Education Foundation, PULSE EFT Network, and area community banks. High school teachers who teach economics, social studies, math or business education are encouraged to attend the TEA approved course.
The one day workshop will help teachers:
- Gain valuable insight and instruction in the TEA required principles of financial literacy – everything from balancing a checkbook, credit scores, debit cards, to understanding different types of insurance and investment vehicles, and identity theft;
- Earn 6 required CPE hours with a TEA-approved curriculum;
- Receive a $200 stipend;
- A Mentor - for completing this course you will be paired with a Banker-Mentor from your local community bank to serve as a personal resource to you; and
- Free financial planning advice from your local community bank partner!
