Andrew Hill understands that laying the foundation for making good financial decisions begins with crucial intervention as early as kindergarten. As the Bank’s economic education officer, he heads the Bank’s economic and personal financial education program. Since 2002, Andrew has studied how personal finance and economic education impacts student achievement as both a researcher and a practitioner. These findings support the ongoing expansion of the Bank’s training programs and inform curricula improvements.
Andrew was one of the key contributors to producing the “The Federal Reserve and You.” This video series synthesizes years of in-person teacher training about the mission and purposes of the Federal Reserve, money and banking basics, and the history of American central banking into a readily available medium (YouTube and the Bank’s website).
Andrew has a Ph.D., M.A., and B.S. in economics from the University of Delaware. He has published articles in the Journal of Economic Education, Empirical Pedagogy, the International Handbook of Financial Literacy, the International Review of Economics Education, Perspectives on Economic Education Research (PEER), the Journal of Consumer Education, Social Education, and Social Studies and the Young Learner, and numerous lessons for use in the K–12 classroom. He is also an adjunct professor at Temple University and has received numerous teaching awards.
