The Nebraska Council is working to make sure that teachers have the training, resources and support to confidently and effectively teach the next generation of Nebraskans. It is our belief that when teachers are successful in the classroom their students will be successful in life.
To this end, the Council offers economic and financial literacy training to teachers throughout the state by utilizing our established workshop, seminar and post-graduate educational programs. These programs are sponsored and staffed by our regional Centers for Economic Education and are held on college campuses, government facilities, and private venues. The Council has also developed online training modules to ensure the benefits of these activities are available to teachers regardless of location or resources.
The Council and its Centers also have support for pre-service educators, methods instructors and mentors for tomorrow’s generation of K–12 educators. By providing new teachers with the materials and support they need to succeed in their classrooms from day one, the Council helps ensure a quality experience for both students and teachers.
