NASHVILLE, Tenn. – First Choice Emergency Room is sponsoring Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance curriculum at several schools in the Pearland area. Foundations in Personal Finance is the premier curriculum for teaching financial literacy to students using interactive learning.  

 Ramsey developed Foundations in Personal Finance to teach students sound financial principles so they can avoid financial difficulties as they become adults. The lessons are taught in an entertaining, passionate, and easy-to-understand style to help students learn the financial lessons their parents have learned the hard way. Each interactive lesson is taught by Ramsey through age-specific questions. The curriculum is aligned with Texas’ state standards with an emphasis on 21st Century Learning Skills like critical thinking, analyzing information, problem solving, and applying knowledge to new situations. Foundations in Personal Finance is being taught in more than 10,000 schools and educational institutions nationwide.

 “We are pleased to be able to sponsor the finance curriculum at schools in the Pearland area as part of our commitment to support the local community,” said Dr. Denise Ryan, Facility Medical Director of First Choice Emergency Room’s Pearland facility.
