The purpose of the program is to provide the teachers with innovative family finance materials and training. In return, they provide on-going guidance to the project through curriculum editing and development, supporting newly trained educators and conducting educational sessions at the annual national training in June.
"It is the continued collaboration with educators that strengthens the curriculum, distinguishes FEFE's educator training and produces quality family finance educators," said Lisa Hallaman, marketing coordinator for the program.
The eight teachers chosen are:
Carol L. Gragg of Hamilton; Joanna Krogstad of Bozeman; Priscilla A. Hedgecock of Boulder; Roxane Shammel of Dillon; Irene Nelson of Billings; and Kim Knoche and Deani Goyette of Forsyth, and Marjorie Chinadle of Rudyard.
