Do I have to share my financials with others?
The other classmates and the instructor will never have access to your financial numbers unless you choose to share.
Is there homework?
You will be answering questions and inputting numbers into your personal workbook to get an accurate look at your own financials.
Is this course just for women?
This is a women-only course, taught by a woman. It is designed this way to create a space of comfort and support, encouraging participants to share their vulnerabilities and ask questions without feeling self-conscious, as we dive into the traditionally male-dominated world of personal finance. All participants must identify as women in a way that’s significant to them. Private classes can be co-ed, per the group's choice.
Can you do a private class for a group?
If you have a group that is interested in doing the class together, I am happy to arrange a private class for just your group. Private classes can be co-ed, per the group's choice. Live in Tucson? We can meet in-person too! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why "crying in finance"?
In the spirit of the infamous scene from A League Of Their Own where Tom Hanks is shouting "there's no crying in baseball," imagine me shouting "there's no crying in finance!" . . . but as a much more loving, cheerleading coach who is also holding a box of tissues just in case.
Why Didn't I Learn This
Good question! As a former high school math teacher I was frustrated to have my students memorize trigonometry formulas instead of learning basic financial literacy. While not part of the standard education, it is crucial for navigating our society.
IRA? Net worth? Retirement? Debt? The mere mention of the topic of money makes many people feel anxious, especially women who historically have not been included in the financial world or family financial decisions. Let's change that.
I created this non-judgmental course to help women at any level of personal finance knowledge gain an understanding of their current financial position and how their spending, saving, and lifestyle habits affect their financial future.
"I took Haley's finance class after dreading figuring out a financial plan for the past 20 years. She made it easy to learn financial concepts, explaining them in relatable terms and answering all additional questions. The progressive nature of the course, worked well, helping me to first figure out my current financial situation, my spending habits, then understanding what levers I have the opportunity to pull and adjust to ensure my financial situation aligns with my life dreams. After taking her class I feel more confident in my financial future and understanding the impact of short and long term decisions."
Hello, nice to meet you! I love teaching, numbers, and spreadsheets. Through my education, I have earned a Bachelor's in Mathematics, Master's in Teaching, and Certificate of Entrepreneurship. I have tutored and taught all levels of high school math from remedial Algebra to AP Statistics. After four years as a full time teacher, I changed careers and started a brewery with my husband. For nine years, I oversaw the day-to-day business operations of the brewery including financial reporting and analysis, human resources, event planning, marketing, and customer experience.
On my own path to financial independence with my husband and two young boys, we sold our business and moved to a lower cost of living area. While my boys are in preschool, I now spend my days doing things that bring me joy including drinking tea, training for triathlons, mountain biking, substitute teaching, and teaching this finance course.
I am excited to use my experience in both math education and real-world financials to help women in our society become more financially literate and live lives that align what brings them joy with how they spend their time and money.
