During these unprecedented times, it is very important that we are strategic and conscious of how we manage our finances. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it's even more important to budget our finances to align with our everyday life, especially with all the changes happening worldwide. Many adults don’t understand the importance of budgeting and managing their finances due to lack of education and exposure. Therefore, The Main Street Academy (TMSA) implemented the Financial Literacy curriculum for students to gain exposure and begin establishing financial management skills at an early age.
TMSA's Financial Literacy curriculum is currently by taught by long-term substitute teacher Ms. Ida Sanders to 6th - 8th grade TMSA scholars. The goal of the program is to successfully teach TMSA scholars how to understand and effectively use various financial skills, as well as set and achieve short and long term financial goals to secure their financial well-being for the future. Presently, scholars are learning how to budget, invest, save, and capitalize their finances.
