  • Thomas E. Dear III, known as Teddy, is a proud University City, MO native who comes from humble beginnings. He thanks his village for his wonderful childhood memories, which he uses to fulfill his passion for telling stories. During his profession in banking, he volunteered to discuss the importance of financial literacy with the youth. The sessions genuinely enriched the children with knowledge. In hindsight, he wished he would have been taught financial literacy when he was younger. His life experiences are what inspired the story Teddy Makes Cents.
