My name is Kim Sparks and I am excited about teaching Personal Finance! I was born and raised in Jackson. I am married to Michael Sparks, who serves as a pastor at Fellowship Bible Church. Together we have six children and 5 grandchildren. I graduated with highest honors from Union University with a BS degree in Business. Prior to graduation, I was awarded the medal for Academic Excellence in Economics and Finance. It is my hope that my enthusiasm for personal finance will spark a genuine interest in each of my students. From my perspective, personal finance and economics are two of the most practical social science courses our students will take. I truly believe that the information taught in this course will equip students to become financially stable adults. Learning to be fiscally responsible at an early age will hopefully prevent students from making unwise financial decisions that could impact them for years to come. I see it as a privilege and a great responsibility to educate the next generation of leaders in the subject of personal finance. The supply list for the class can be found on the Faith Tutorial website under the registration tab. If you have any questions, comments or concerns you can contact me via email at ksparks1968@gmail.com or by text / phone at (731) 225-8655. I’m looking forward to a wonderful year!

Sincerely,
Kim Sparks
