The 26th of May marks National Thank a Teacher Day, celebrating schools, colleges, teachers and support staff.
MyBnk are proud to work with hundreds of teachers each year through our expert-led money programmes.
To mark the occasion, we caught up with Darren Collins, Interactive Investor’s personal finance teacher of the year 2020, qualified Financial Adviser and MyBnk fundraiser, to talk all things teaching, financial education and financial freedom.
The thing that drives me the most is the chance to help young people achieve their potential. I aim to give students the confidence, belief, and motivation to overcome obstacles and think bigger than they may have done when first walking into my classroom at the beginning of the academic year. I have always taught with the philosophy: if I can and have done this, so can you!
And why is financial education so important?
