This cohort of highly-qualified Personal Finance Teacher Fellows will offer personal finance professional development and resources to other teachers in their school, school division, and region. In this way, the VCEE can dedicate more personal finance resources where they will have a meaningful impact. We believe this investment will help improve education opportunities and economic equity in Virginia’s underserved communities by ultimately improving the financial knowledge and skills of middle and high school students.

It is with the greatest pleasure that we announce our first ever Virginia Personal Finance Teacher Fellows!
