Posted on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at 9:55 am

Dana Knight from Citizen’s Tri-County, mother of student Gavin Knight, presented an interesting lesson to the 5th grade RTI group at Monteagle Elementary School. She discussed the importance of building a good credit rating. Knight showed the students how good credit could save you thousands of dollars. The students were impressed how quickly she rounded numbers, used percentages, and added numbers without a calculator. Knight also provided each student with a treat bag at the end of her presentation. Guest speakers like Knight help enforce the idea that math is an important class with many real life connections that will help students throughout life.
