Kim Frasier's Class

The JA Classroom of the Week is Kim Frasier’s class at Warren East High School. Her class was led by JA Volunteer Sarah Williams who is a JA Alum and a Trainer & Customer Service Rep at American Bank & Trust. Their Junior Achievement program is titled “JA Exploring Economics” and it focuses on using hands-on activities to explain complex economic concepts such as supply and demand, inflation, and the production, distribution and consumption of goods. It gives insight into the effect governments and individuals have on the global economy— and on the price of a loaf of bread. Sarah’s favorite part of volunteering for JA is when students have “light bulb” moments and when they can apply their knowledge and skills to daily life. She also said, “Volunteering with JA is an amazing experience every time I step in the classroom. The kids challenge me to continue to learn and grow. There’s nothing more rewarding than helping a child learn.”
