TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Since 2009, Game Theory Academy has served more than 1,000 youth in the San Francisco Bay Area. In small afterschool classes of 10-15 students, we teach personal finance, economics, and decision-making strategies. Often, our students have experience with juvenile justice, foster care, and homelessness, and a majority are in low-income families. Our goal is for them to learn—through games and activities—resource maximization using the same analytical strategies of business executives.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Our innovative curriculum combines real experiences from our students with business economics. Within our creative team, we focus on producing material relevant to the students while remaining true to the underlying economic theory. The lesson plans push students to identify, within their lives and environs, the economic structures they experience every day. Through true stories written by youth struggling in today’s intricate economy, students confront issues such as budgeting, student loans, scams, and other risky decisions.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

2013 Excellence in Financial Literacy Education (EIFLE) Award for our ‘Make Your Decisions Count’ curriculum.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Our design team’s background features degrees in economics, business, education, environmental studies, literature, and political science. Alma maters include Yale School of Management, University of California–Berkeley, University of California–Santa Cruz, and the Presidio Graduate School of Sustainable Management.
