Classroom Connections

Since 2001, we have offered a one-day professional development event for teachers who integrate personal finance in the classroom.  This annual event in May brings together teachers from across the state to network and share practices with one another; to learn about new classroom resources; and to improve their own personal knowledge of personal finance concepts.


Date and Location

Classroom Connections was originally scheduled to be held on May 6, 2021 at The Grappone Conference in Concord, NH.  Directions hereHowever due to continuing challenges being presented by the global pandemic, this year’s event will be converted to an on demand format.  In this way, teachers will be able to listen to the content at their leisure.

We are grateful that Classroom Connections is once again sponsored by our friends at Fidelity Investments.

Networking, Classroom Resources and Professional Development

At the in-person event – in addition to the content sessions, we make classroom resources available as well as the opportunity to share best practices with other teachers from across the state.  Six (6) professional development hours are generally provided for attending the event.

Overnight Accommodations!

For teachers traveling more than 45 miles, we would have been again able to provide free hotel accommodations near the workshop.
