Professional Development, Workshops and Resources
The mission of the National Center for Economic and Financial Education is to advance the growth, service, and recognition of K-12 educators in the New York metropolitan area as they develop economic and personal finance education.
The National Center offers FREE in-person and online workshops led by educators. Workshops demonstrate how to integrate economics and personal finance into math, science, and social studies classes as well as the elementary curriculum. Workshop attendees will:
- Receive hands-on active learning resources
- Customizable programs for schools and districts
- Exchange successful tips and techniques with their peers
- Receive free publications, lessons and other resources
- Earn Continuing Teacher and Leader Education credit
The Council for Economic Education is an approved Sponsor of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) in New York State.
Starting in January 2018 we will no longer provide copies of materials at workshops. All materials will be sent in PDF files via email. You will need to print out the materials and bring them to the workshop.
All evaluations and certificates will be sent via email after the workshop. You will have to complete and submit the evaluation in order to receive your certificate of completion for CTLE.
If you have any questions about the below workshops, please contact: Ruben Rivera, Director, Professional Development, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meals are provided at every workshop.
