“There’s not really a way to learn about death before your time but you can learn about taxes. Taxes are only a small portion of finances, however. Over this semester, we have learned about taxes, savings, retirement, checks, credit cards and scores, and other things in life dealing with money. There are key points to everything within these areas. Because of this class, I am more confident than ever in handling my own money. I can now recognize finance mistakes before I make them. Every high school student should have the experience that I now possess. I feel more secure and ready; ready to go to college and live on my own.” Sally Paulsen
