Is your financial health affecting your physical health? Does the stress of just barely making ends meet weigh you down month after month? Are you considering giving up teaching, even though you love it, in favor of a more lucrative career? Whether you’re not making enough or you’re spending too much, this class is for you. 

A six-week teacher development class with three optional graduate-level credits from Adams State University, Budget: Your Foundation to Personal Financial Success will get you on the right track. This course is a must for those who feel like they’re spread too thin. Teachers are among the most underpaid professionals in the country, so if you’re struggling, you’re certainly not alone. That doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about it, though, which is precisely what this course explores.

Over the six weeks, you’ll learn how to devise a budget, track expenses, and account for future obligations. You’ll also get the opportunity to analyze your current situation, including your outstanding debts, available savings, and spending habits, so you can identify any problem areas and address them accordingly. Finally, you’ll consider both short- and long-term goals and then come up with ways to achieve them while still covering the necessities. Along the way, you’ll gain a thorough understanding of any retirement benefits that are available to you and how you can make the most of them.  

Like other Happy Teacher classes, Budget takes a holistic approach to ensuring the success of all those who enroll. For example, upon completing the course, not only will you have a better handle on your personal finances, but you’ll also feel more confident and secure in general—even when the next payday feels far away. This will allow you to take better command of your classroom and ultimately give students the best version of yourself each and every day. And depending on what you teach, you may even be able to incorporate some of your own financial literacy into the curriculum! After all, even elementary school students can benefit from learning the basics of budgeting. 

Teaching is an incredibly fulfilling career, but the financial struggles that can come with it—especially for those in the private sector, who tend to earn the least—can sap anyone of their passion for the field. Take back control of your finances and start focusing on why you got into teaching in the first place by enrolling in Budget: Your Foundation to Personal Financial Success. Coupled with a few other professional development classes, you’ll be unstoppable in the coming academic year. 

Optional: Adams State University Credit

*Optional Adams State University credit after the class ends (additional $165).
