It’s February, and there is no better time than the month of the FAFSA and all things financial aid to have a discussion covering “The top ten financial mistakes made by parents about college”. Navigating the process of paying for a college education can be daunting to say the least, but being prepared and informed makes all the difference. As a College Advisor at Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences, I meet regularly with many parents who wish they had been more prepared for financing their child’s post-secondary education. For most of us, paying for college is one of the largest investments we will make in our lifetime, and we need help from professionals who know the common pitfalls and understand the facts.
PEF’s next College Knowledge Lunch Break will focus on financial mistakes that parents commonly make related to college, and it will take place at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, February 20th. Liz Marr with UBS will be our speaker and her professional insight is sure to enlighten all who attend. We hope you take advantage of this opportunity to hear from a financial professional, and to become more familiar with the resources available to your family through PEF College Advisors and School Counselors here in Hamilton County. Commit today to join us by registering online for this informational session.

Project Inspire is looking for outstanding grade 4-8 math and science teachers to serve as year-long mentors in our teacher residency program.
It is an extensive focus on preparation that makes the residency model different from any other program in education. From beginning to end, every aspect of the model is designed to provide teachers the knowledge, skills and disposition they need to make an immediate impact in the urban classroom — a difference every one of their students can feel.
