You can see he loves it 

This is my QBR co-author Rich MacDonald doing what he loves more than the QBR. He looks a little hyper in that picture because, well, he's a little hyper. Our students gave him a joke coffee mug for his frenetic 8am classroom presentations this spring. Here's the site he's helped write; he does this stuff all the time. The punchline?
MacDonald told third- through fifth-grade teachers at the June workshop that if their students leave their classrooms understanding that credit is not money, they will have made great strides.

American families have an average of $8,000 in credit card debt, Erwin said.

�The earlier we can get students to think about smart money decisions, we are already helping them build their wealth,� she said.
