TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Most kids first learn economics in high school. That's like throwing them into calculus without teaching them to add! I specialize in economics enrichment for kids and love showing them how economics is fun and affects their daily lives! I am the author of a the Striker Jones children's mystery series that teaches economics, and I've taught from all the way from preschool to college.
