CEE’s 62nd Financial Literacy & Economic Education Conference attracted hundreds of educators from across the nation who are passionate about integrating financial literacy and economics into their classrooms. Attendees found themselves surrounded by like-minded teachers who share their dedication to offering their students the best of the best. It was a huge success!!
This year’s workshops, taught by respected educators and subject matter-experts, provided teachers with creative and engaging ways to teach the fundamentals of economics and personal finance and stay abreast of new teaching technologies. This year, we offered workshops on topics such as:
- Inviting AI Into Your Econ & Personal Finance Classroom
- Black History and EPF: An Imperative Alliance
- Monetary Policy — The Past, The Present, The Future, and Easy to Understand!
- TikTok Stocks: Insider Teaching Activities
With over 29 exhibitors, teachers were able to bring back a host of new materials and resources to their classroom. Our agenda also offered collaborative roundtable discussions and time for networking, so teachers could get to know others in their field of work.
One of the highlights of the conference was the keynote presentation by Brandon Copeland, a 10-year NFL veteran, speaker, educator, and advocate. Copeland’s inspiring words resonated with the audience, emphasizing the importance of financial literacy and education in shaping the future of our youth.
The CEE’s mission to equip K-12 students with the tools and knowledge of personal finance and economics came to life during this remarkable two-day event. Teachers raved about the lessons and were excitedly sharing how they would incorporate these new ideas into their classrooms.
After the conference, one teacher from Michigan shared:
“This may be the best conference I’ve ever attended! The sessions were so informational and full of engaging and exciting econ lessons that I can use immediately in my classes! I will be forever thankful!”
