In the conference Exhibit Hall, teachers are able to gather free resources and talk to Jump$tart National Partners that provide educational supplies that can be used in classrooms.

As the nation’s leading advocate for youth financial literacy, the Jump$tart Coalition® is proud to conduct its sixth annual conference devoted specifically to PreK-12 classroom teachers of personal finance. The Jump$tart National Educator Conference is dedicated to training, motivating and appreciating personal finance educators.

Dr. Mike State, the Take Charge America Institute and Jump$tart Vice Chairman, shared his “10 Big Ideas,”  at the 2013 National Educator Conference, which was one of the event’s most popular sessions.

The conference offers classroom educators an opportunity to see, learn about, and try educational resources that can be integrated immediately into current lesson plans; to attend informative workshops; to meet with leaders from finance and education; and to network with colleagues from across the country.

“Our National Educator Conference is a cornerstone of Jump$tart’s mission to educate and prepare our nation’s youth for life-long financial success,” said Laura Levine, Jump$tart President and CEO. “Every year, we look forward to working with our teachers, sharing resources from our national partners and introducing them to others teaching personal finance to our nation’s next generation of consumers.”

During the Jump$tart National Educator Conference, teachers get the opportunity to network and exchange ideas with other attendees across the nation.
