DISCLAIMER: I am not a financial advisor. I teach fundamentals of building wealth.
As a former Math teacher and middle school administrator, I know the ins and outs of teaching Math standards, formative assessments, high-stakes testing, lesson planning, and "teaching to the test." Yet, despite the rigor from Common Core, our students are not acquiring the tools necessary to learn financial literacy. As I like to say, “Making Money is a Mindset!” My financial literacy lesson, Math is Money, will show the relationship between basic Math fundamentals and building wealth. Not only do we want our students to know how to build generational wealth, but we want them to transfer wealth to future generations. Most importantly, I will take the time to develop students' mindsets for building wealth.
At the age of 18, students should have a plan to acquire more assets than liabilities. If students are set up to do this, then poverty rates for Blacks and Hispanics can significantly decrease. This is where I, Dr. Rischer, come in…I have created a series of lessons from my first published book that will teach students: Math is Money: If you can do Math, then you can put money in your pocket!” At the end of the program, each student will create their own Wealth Building Plan (WBP).
