In November, Clearpoint had the privilege to attend the Jump$tart National Educator Conference. For those who don’t know, The Jump$tart Coalition is a nonprofit organization working to promote financial literacy and education for students ranging from pre-school through college. Clearpoint is proud to share this mission with Jump$tart and to be one of its national partners. The educator conference was yet another opportunity to participate in the great work Jump$tart is doing.
The conference presented a wide variety of opportunities for teachers. From certification testing to financial planning sessions to a variety of presentations about curriculum and personal development, there was something for everyone. Our favorite part of the conference was definitely the exhibit hall, where we had a booth. We took advantage of this opportunity to not only tell teachers about our educational resources (such as our MMI University program), but to ask them about their favorite financial literacy lessons.
Check out the video below to learn more about Jump$tart, its teachers and the important lessons they are passing on to students around the country.
As you can see, this year’s conference was home to a dedicated and energetic group of educator’s. Clearpoint was thankful to attend and to capture so much of these teachers’ wisdom on camera.
