This week’s JA People of Action are Mackenzie Adams
This week’s JA People of Action are Mackenzie Adams, Kindergarten teacher at Rockfield Elementary, and Haley Lord, Senior Audit Associate at FORVIS. Their Kindergarten class used 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. Haley’s favorite thing about JA is spending time with students. She also said, “I have enjoyed the opportunity to be a volunteer with JA. Teaching students valuable life skills like money management and smart decision making has been just as much fun for me as it is for them.”
