Plymouth Whitemarsh High School Business Teacher Nancy Labricciosa has been named a winner of the Second Annual NGPF Teacher Innovator Award. The award, presented by Next Gen Personal Finance (NGPF), recognizes outstanding teachers who have developed their own projects and activities to engage and educate their students. NGPF received dozens of innovative and creative project submissions from high school and college educators. These projects were judged based on criteria including creativity, skill development and ease with which other teachers can bring into their classroom.
Ms. Labricciosa was recognized for developing a comprehensive and holistic "Retirement Investing Project" in which students see the link between their youthful decisions and their standard of living during their golden years.
