Teachers deserve to be financially secure.

Jean Chatzky, financial editor, TODAY show on NBC

COVID brought with it a lot of unexpected fallout. Many families scrambled just to get by. Many teachers wanted to retire but found they weren’t adequately prepared. The importance of financial planning became glaringly obvious. In her talk, “Your Money & Your Life: Where Do You Go From Here?,” Today Show Financial Editor Jean Chatzky will reveal the moves we can make now to help ensure a life of financial comfort for ourselves and our family. Check out Jean’s video above with a quick preview of her presentation.

“Your Money & Your Life: Where Do You Go from Here?” | Tue, Jan 12, 7:30 p.m. CT

Teachers deserve to be empowered.

Teaching is hard under the best of circumstances. But you know what they say—you can’t pour from an empty cup. That means taking care of ourselves and working from a place of fullness. In his talk “Educators Deserve It!,” teacher, administrator, and best-selling author Adam Welcome will share his energy, passion, and ideas to empower and motivate us to become the best version of ourselves. 

“Educators Deserve It!” | Tue, Feb 2, 7:30 p.m. CT

Teachers deserve to be inspired.

Tough things happen to people every day. It’s how we react to those challenges that really define who we are. In her inspiring talk, “Harnessing the Headwinds of Change,” retired Colonel Nicole Malachowski, USAF, will share her personal journey of adversity and triumph. She will encourage us to rethink the challenges in our lives as we move beyond resilience to resurgence.
