Mr. Lloyd A. Yaun
The 2019-20 will be my 21st year teaching and this is my 11th year at SAHS. I teach Business Education including 1 section of Accounting and 4 sections of Foundations of Personal Finance. I am proud to say we were the first school in Aiken County to be using the Dave Ramsey curriculum. The Dave Ramsey Personal Finance class is now taught in 4 ACPSD High Schools and 1 middle school. In 2018-19, I served on the South Carolina Department of Education committee to update the Personal Finance State Standards. I would dare say Aiken County is the unofficial home of the HS Dave Ramsey class with 4 HS's in Aiken County teaching it. They include and and number of sections: SAHS (5), MVHS (3), AHS (3), and NAHS (2)
In Accounting, we will use a software program provided by textbook publisher, Cengage, to complete all assignments and there is a classroom set of books. This program is called MindTap and we will use on a daily basis. Students are expected to ask questions as they arise - Accounting is very difficult but a good work effort, paying attention in class, and asking questions when you need to will allow you to succeed.
In Personal Finance, each student is issued a copy of the via data and textbook via online streaming and the text can be save on Office 360 OneDrive . The vast majority of our work will be completed in class. We would not be able to teach this class except through the generosity of Richard Young Associates located in Augusta, GA. There contact information and location are at Richard Young Associates, 205 Hudson Trace, Augusta, GA 30907(706) 739-0725 or (800) 860-6577 RYA@ryaltd.com The weblink is Richard Young Associates Homepage. Financial Advisor John Travis is the reason we have the program here at SAHS. Here is a link to his homepage.....John Travis - Financial Advisor
