Workshops- Webinars

The Mississippi Council on Economic Education is pleased to partner with our national Council for Economic Education (CEE) and NextGen Personal Finance (NGPF) to bring you professional development webinars for teachers nationwide. The webinars cover multiple topics on how to integrate personal finance and economics in the classroom and create a fun learning experience for your students.
