Many of my students live in low socioeconomic status.
My students range from ages 11-15.
Some live with both parents and others live with only one parent. Many of my students are being raised by other family members that are not their birth parents.
Most of my students do not bring in supplies for class projects therefore I use my budget money and my own money to buy the things they need. This project will expose my students to a skill that can carry over into a future career.
Prior to Hurricane Harvey in August 2017, my students had access to a Janome Embroidery machine to use in class. Our machine sat in 3 inches of water for a prolonged period of time and was thus ruined. I want to get an embroidery machine back in class so my students can continue that experience.
The exposure to such a popular trend can lead to careers for my students in the future.
I teach an A & H (Agriculture and Homemaking) type class also. My students create projects to show in our County Fair every January. Having the embroidery machine back in class will be one more great tool for my students to use.
