"The single biggest difference between financial success and financial failure is how well you manage your money. It’s simple: to master money, you must manage money."

- T. Harv Eker

My students are limited in many resources at home and at school because of the low-economic area they live in. As their teacher and role model, I want to ensure my students are on a path to being successful adults. Many of my students because of their disadvantaged backgrounds have little to no opportunities to learn about financial literacy. They spend their allowance or parents’ earnings on toys or snacks without thinking about the consequences of these small expenditures can add up over time.

It is important to teach students the value of saving money early on to save for important things in the future such as a college education. The possibilities are endless when my students can use a Mac Book Air laptop to access online financial literacy activities. The students will become financial literate as they engage in games and activities that teach them about budgeting, credit/debit, and saving.

I am requesting a Mac Book Air laptop to teach financial literacy in a fun 21st century way to my students. Studies have shown that students who are financially literate become financially responsible young adults regardless of income level.

Frida Kahlo ~ What water gave me with details, 1938

Unlike most of Frida’s paintings, this one has no dominant central focus. It is a symbolic work illustrating various events from the artist’s life and incorporates numerous elements from her other works as well as some that appeared in her later works. The style of this painting is “surrealistic” although Frida never considered herself a “Surrealist” and didn’t even know about surrealism at the time it was painted. What the water gave her were images of past and present, life and death, comfort and loss. In the midst of this vision is Frida, drowned in her imaginings and bleeding from the corner of her mouth. She is kept afloat by a lasso that serves as a tightrope for insects and a miniature dancer.

I like how people act like you can’t be racist and sleep with a person of color as if misogynists don’t sleep with women all the time
