Larimer Bucks Come to Patrick Henry High School

Man standing and holding custom paper money.Congratulations to Mr. Thomas Larimer at Patrick Henry High School. He received an award for Financial Education Teacher of the Quarter from the Virginia Credit Union.

The recognition stems from Mr. Larimer changing his classroom into its own economy with its own currency "Larimer Bucks". Students earn money every week by completing assignments, and students will also face real world situations such as paying rent and other fees throughout the week. Mr. Larimer has been implementing project based learning into his classroom to make financial education more engaging for his students.
