What teachers are saying about Jill
My students learned several important tips from Jill
“My students learned several important tips from Jill when she presented lessons on how easy it is for students to accumulate credit card debt while in college, and how long it takes to clear up the debt. Another important message was how to protect one’s credit report and why it is so important in our current economic situation. My students really appreciated Jill sharing her knowledge with them. I look forward to her speaking to my future classes.”

The kids were entertained, engaged and full of questions
“Jill delivered a presentation about finances to the Grassroots / St. Luke’s School Life and Leadership Program and did a terrific job. The kids were entertained, engaged and full of questions that she was able to field with aplomb. Educational and Informative.”

Jill takes them one giant step closer to becoming financially responsible adults
“Put Jill Russo Foster in the classroom and students can’t help but learn a thing or two about managing personal finances. Jill takes them one giant step closer to becoming financially responsible adults – a necessity for success in these times. Ms. Foster has the talent of building rapport with students and effectively reaches them at their own level of understanding. Her experience in the banking and mortgage industry, and a wealth of anecdotes and knowledge that she shares, draws students in and teaches them the basics of managing their own finances without drowning in jargon. I do not hesitate to call on her expertise. I’ve made her book Cash, Credit, and Your Finances required reading in my house.”
