Florence 1's Nunnally Receives State and National Recognition
The South Carolina Financial Literacy Master Teacher
Florence 1 teacher Patricia Nunnally, who serves at the James F. Reames Center, has completed requirements of the South Carolina Financial Literacy Master Teacher Program (SCFLMTP). It provides incentives for K-12 teachers who are experts in the area of financial literacy and have a desire to lead professional development workshops in their school, district, or at state educator conferences. The goal is to increase the number of South Carolina students receiving high quality personal finance instruction.
According to the SCFLMT website, South Carolina Financial Literacy Master Teachers will provide outstanding training and resources for teachers throughout the state. By leading fellow teachers in demonstrating how to integrate real life concepts across the curriculum, these teachers will greatly assist South Carolina in educating and empowering our youth with financial literacy skills needed to make sound financial decisions.
