How much money do you make?
The kids in your classroom probably aren't shy about what they ask you. If you talk with them about money, you are likely to hear questions such as "Why can't I buy that?" and "How much money do you make?" As an educator, you need to decide what information you are comfortable sharing. When deciding, consider the age and maturity level of the children, as well as how you can help them develop a happy, healthy relationship with money.
It is important for your students to learn about financial basics from a teacher. Focus on sharing what your students should know without making them feel responsible for the family's financial situation. Be careful to strike that balance in your classroom conversations about money.
