BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -

This week’s JA People of Action are Beth Bragg and Jennifer Myers

This week’s JA People of Action are Beth Bragg and Jennifer Myers, Kindergarten Teachers at T.C. Cherry and Regina Palmer and Lisa Johnson, Kindergarten Instructional Assistants at T.C. Cherry. The Kindergarten Junior Achievement program is titled “JA Ourselves” which uses storybook characters in read-aloud and hands-on activities to introduce the role people play in an economy. Through engaging, volunteer-led activities, young students learn about individual choices, money, the importance of saving and giving, and the value of work. The Kindergarten faculty and staff’s favorite thing about JA is that, “it reinforces the kindergarten standards and teaches real world financial skills in a fun way.” They also said, “Junior Achievement always provides a positive real world learning experience for the students and they truly enjoy learning about economics. The students loved ALL the hands-on activities and the fun stories.”
