About this event

Join us at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City for this summer’s professional development workshop series, free to K-16. These full-day workshops, hosted in partnership with the University of Missouri-Kansas City Office of Financial Literacy and the Center for Economic Education at Emporia State University, include demonstrations of classroom resources, visits to local businesses and updates from subject matter experts on hot topics tied to economics and personal finance. A graduate credit option from Emporia State University, complimentary meals and onsite parking are available. There is no cost to teachers to attend, but advance registration is required at External LinkTeacherPD.kcfed.org.

Update: Thank you for your interest in our teacher workshop series. We have reached maximum capacity for all of the workshops except for June 28 and are accepting wait list registrations for the other dates. We’ll reach out to those who are wait listed if space becomes available.
