Amy Vetrone Financial Education Leader

Riverview Elementary Students in Wisconsin Read Sammy’s Big Dream!

Amy Vetrone is a financial education leader.

She and I have never met in person. We connected on LinkedIn 5 or 6 years ago. We both share a passion for financial literacy education, especially efforts that target kids and families.

Amy teaches her son saving is a great habit. It helps make big dreams come true!

Since then we have collaborated and coordinated on a variety of projects. Amy:

… Helped catalyze the Wisconsin Bankers Foundation Sammy Rabbit Reading Raises Interest program initiated. It’s an annual statewide program that has bankers bringing financial education to elementary schools through storybooks. 

… Used Sammy Resources with her own child

… Was a Sponsor of Sammy Rabbit’s 1st National Dream Big Read and read at St. John Lutheran School in Berlin, Wisconsin. She gifted the school Sammy Big Dream storybooks. 

… And, earlier this year, she shared Sammy resources with Riverview Elementary in Wautoma, WI.

You “predicted” it! Sammy books were a big hit at Riverview, the same as they have been all over the world. Here is the note and picture Amy shared with me.

Happy 2021 to you.  I hope you are doing well.  I wanted to share this with you.  I have a teacher friend that asked me for financial curriculum ideas for her 1st graders.  I gave her Sammy Rabbit books and referred her to your website for additional resources.  She shared this picture with me.  These are students at Riverview Elementary in Wautoma, WI.  I thought you would enjoy this.  Take care!  Amy
