The Tennessee Financial Literacy Commission is proud to announce the new Distinguished Educator Council and welcome our six inaugural “teacher champions”!

The Distinguished Educator Council is a specially selected group of educators and school administrators who are passionate about financial literacy and can help to fill the critical need for teacher feedback and leadership as the Commission continues to grow.

While helping the Commission equip their colleagues to provide high-quality financial education to Tennessee students, our Distinguished Educators will:

  • Give voice to their own experiences teaching financial literacy
  • Provide program feedback based on real classroom experience
  • Serve as TNFLC ambassadors to colleagues and administration
  • Support educators by co-hosting professional development sessions
  • Contribute to development of financial education resources and content for their peers.

Teacher with students

The inaugural council includes six teachers who have been previously honored with a TNFLC Leadership Award. These teacher champions will serve for the 2023-2024 school year. We are thrilled to welcome:
