2018 Winner - Steve Jents, St. Paul Central High School

Steve lives in Falcon Heights and teaches 11-12 grade IB Economic Systems at St. Paul Central High School. He has been teaching economics for the last 5 years, beginning when he took advantage of an opening at his school to teach an AP Macroeconomics class. Steve became involved with MCEE when he assisted with developing a personal finance curriculum that was both rigorous and relevant for urban high school students as part of our Learning Together, Thriving Together program. His students benefit from having him as a coach for an Economics Challenge team, and his providing resources for them to continue learning outside of class.
