OCEE is grateful for Citizen’s Bank of Edmond’s support of Edmond teachers and financial education in sponsoring the Edmond Financial Literacy Teacher of the Month! Congratulations Cynthia Hodges from Angie Debo Elementary! Start Now! Sharing this savings tip from OCEE Board Member and dean of College of Business is Mickey Hepner. Lee said OCEE enjoys a unique and beneficial partnership with UCO through the College of Business Administration. The partnership with the College of Business Administration enhances OCEE’s work in areas such as research and providing college accredited coursework for teachers. The partnership also provides cost-saving benefits such as office space, human resource management and reduced administrative and operational expenses. “We would not be able to do what we do without the partnership that we have with UCO,” she said. Lee said the feedback from teachers has been positive about the professional development workshops. “They feel empowered to go back and put into place what they have learned,” she said. “That is our goal from the training that they can walk into the classroom the next day and implement what they have learned.” For more information call 405-974-6234 or visit www.econisok.org.
