“How to Adult”
La Reina English, ESL, and financial literacy teacher Jake Cousineau recently authored a book called How to Adult: Personal Finance for the Real World. The book aims to teach young adults the foundational topics of personal finance: paying for college, budgeting, taxes, credit and credit cards, investing, and many more.
“Working with my students inspired me to write the book. They learn so much in my financial literacy course, but I wanted to create a text they can take with them to consult as they navigate through the financial realities of adulthood. I hope the book is a valuable resource that helps them avoid the missteps so many of us make.”
Through a partnership with TriCounties Bank in Colusa County, where Mr. Cousineau grew up, all graduating seniors in the public schools system will receive a copy of the book.
La Reina students are featured in both the epigraphs and “How It Works” section of each chapter.
If you or anyone in your life needs to boost their financial knowledge, grab a copy on Amazon.
