Hello and welcome to my money stewardship blog. Over the following months I hope to inspire students, helping them understand the basics of earning, saving, spending and investing. We will be learning from the feet of the financial greats, as well as trialling resources that are available to kids across the world. If you become a bit more financially savvy, then I will have done my job.
I am a trained financial advisor (DipFA) and have taught in schools for the past 22 years. I was a runner up in the Moneywise Finance Teacher of the Year awards in both 2018 and 2019 and have been an advisor for BBC bitesize video’s on financial education.
Please do comment on the posts and get in contact if you think that there is a better way to bring financial education to life. I will leave you with a few words from a financial great – Warren Buffett:
“The biggest mistake is not learning the habit of saving properly “
“Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”
“Do not save what is left after spending; instead spend what is left after saving.”
