For non-financial professionals the education in finance might have been a college course or two, most of it having nothing to do with the personal financial affairs that figure so prominently in our lives. Teachers and college instructors at all levels are not much different in that regard from the rest of the country. Yet your personal finances are one of the most important matters you must deal with in your life, and much of it will help determine whether your life will be well provided for or a constant struggle to make ends meet.
This is not a good set of options for someone in such an important career. Perhaps if this were a more socialist society the government would have made all teachers wards of the state and you'd have nothing to worry about or to hope for, not incidentally. Since America is a free society with a capitalist economy, you are left to make your own mistakes and learn as you go along. Corwin Press and I both think that you deserve better, and that's why this book was written.

If there's one thing that education has taught us, it's that we don't have to learn everything the hard way. My dad taught me how to ride a bike so I wouldn't fall so often learning by myself. Learning to count when I started school made it much easier to do math when that became important soon thereafter. I believe the tools and explanations in this book will help you in a very significant way to get a head start on mastering your finances and building your own personal wealth.
That doesn't mean I'm promising you a retirement villa in Italy and a summer place in the Hamptons, but it does mean this: if you use the lessons in this book you will be well on your way to maximizing your opportunities to live a comfortable life and a secure retirement. That to me is financial mastery. My business is helping non-financial people learn the power of financial tools to improve their lives and businesses.

I work with CEOs of companies and the managers within those companies. I speak to small business owners all across the country who rely on their businesses to support their families and the families of their employees. The focus is always to help clients and audiences learn the tools, help them learn how and when to use them, and guide them in making it work for them every day.

If you buy this book and I hope you will , consider that you are in a personal workshop dedicated to honoring your profession and helping you to be appropriately compensated for all your hard work and dedication to our children.

And the last I checked, participation and homework and classwork are all on the syllabi for college, work and life.
Mastery is only a small part of the whole. In fact, the way grades currently are now are a better indicator of success than mastery will ever be. The journey is no longer important, I guess. It all adds up and this commentary is just another educational panacea that tries to see the forest for the trees. I have been an LA Unified teacher for over 20 years. This is not how things are. The pressure to hand out unwarranted grades originates with school administrators.
If a teachers does not hand out enough credits and grades relative to their peers , they will be categorized as ineffective. Do this a few years of this and you will be out of work, and the documentary evidence against you will be … Read More. Administrators succeed by moving students through the system and onto graduation. That is how they define success, and there is nothing wrong with that because that is their job. But, for a senior administrator to say that teachers give out grades too freely because administration has not provided teachers with enough instruction is like the CEO of Blue Cross saying that medical claims are denied too freely because Blue Cross management has not provided claims examiners with enough instruction.
If you can believe that, then I guess you can believe this. Hats off, Dr.
