Chelsea Addison was teaching second grade in St. Louis when she had an epiphany: Although her kids were learning how to count money, they knew nothing about how to manage it. And yet, it was a favorite subject among 8-year-olds. When asked what they wanted to study with time left over in class, their answer was universal: “MONEY!” That led to a new calling for Chelsea. When her three-year assignment with Teach for America was over, she founded a publishing company and wrote “Savannah’s Savings Jar,” a children’s book about kids who start a business and learn about money along the way. We love the idea of families starting the money conversation by reading stories like these together. Thanks Chelsea for taking up the cause! .... .... .... #FinancialLiteracyMonth#FinancialFriends#FinancialLiteracy#FinancialEducation#SavingMoney#Budgeting#ChildrensBooks#Author#Teaching#TeachForAmerica#CommunityPossible
