Become a financial education champion
for your students, your school, your state

As a teacher or administrator in our state schools, you
already know the value of a quality education in a child’s life.

The Tennessee Financial Literacy Commission is proud to
offer you new opportunities—at no cost to you—to enhance
your skills and bring critical financial education to
Tennessee youth.

Receive your financial literacy educator one-day training. Be equipped to teach key financial skills in the classroom immediately.

The Tennessee Financial Literacy Commission (TNFLC) is hosting free training summits across the state for elementary and middle school teachers this fall. Over 4,200 Tennessee teachers have attended these summits and have learned to incorporate financial literacy curriculum into regular classroom instruction.
