Making Life Easy with Gwen Gistarb with guest Dr. Ed Anhal & Michael Barrett

BANKING ON KIDS was created by Dr. Edward F. Anhalt. Dr. Anhalt felt that with the average 50 year old American having only $2,500 in their savings account, and with the nation spending $65 for every $1.00 saved ... it was time to start teaching the merits of “saving for the future”. What better place to start than the elementary/middle school classroom, where students still haven’t come into contact with the ATM Machine or “savings withdrawal slips”.

Dr. Anhalt earned his Bachelors Degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, WI, After returning from the Peace Corps in Shiraz, Iran he decided to pursue advanced studies in the discipline of education. He earned a Masters Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, WI. He followed that by earning his Doctorate of Education from Rutgers University-New Brunswick, NJ. He completed a post doctorate program at Lehigh University-Bethlehem, PA.

Michael Barrett is an entrepreneur and passionate ambassador for positive change in the world. He is a pioneer for ending bullying in schools and was invited to the first ever anti-bullying summit in Washington D.C. The Huffington Post wrote “… his Hero in the Hallway program…gives them a glimmer of hope that bullying can be prevented.” Mike served on the board of BOLD Chicago, a non-profit focused on mentoring inner city youth. Michael attended TEDx Midwest 2010 & 2011, and he was instrumental in bringing together teachers and students for the TED youth event.
