Elizabeth Hale

Personal Finance/Economics/Resource Teacher

About me

Originally from San Diego, California, I enjoyed a successful first career traveling the world as a product manager for a high-tech firmware company.  I fully appreciate the need for our students to be both personally and economically literate when they enter the workplace in a few short years. My background also fostered a interest in supporting students who learn differently.  

     In addition to teaching courses in personal finance and economics, I also serve as case manager for students with learning differences. In this role, I work with students and their families to understand their academic and life goals to create an Individual Educational Plan to achieve those goals. To aid in this process, I encourage students and parents to visit the resource tabs on this web page to find links for some of the tools we will use to plan for the annual IEP meeting. 

     My educational background includes a Masters degree in Special Education from Shenandoah University, a Bachelors in International Business from San Diego State University, and French fluency certifications from Université d'Aix-Marseilles and the French Chamber of Commerce.

Schoology Class Pages

Once classes are assigned, you will Click on your class above to get to your Schoology page. All assignments will be posted 

Schoology and students are responsible for checking in daily to check for upcoming assignment/test/quiz dates. If you are absent, you will still be expected to complete assignments. I encourage students to contact me directly with any questions or special circumstances such as if you believe may be absent for more than a day or two.  Because these are semester classes (not a full year) there is a lot of information to cover in a short time, it is important to me that we don't get behind and become overwhelmed.
