My Students

My students are excited to walk into the the Family and Consumer Science classroom. They are eager to learn new things and get their hands dirty. They love hands-on and engaging projects that get them thinking about real life problems. They are the reason I became a teacher.

Many of my students do not have the resources and experience at home to learn how to be a successful adult.

This is where my little classroom in the corner of the building becomes important. We discuss everything from sewing on a button, budgeting, communication, job skills, and of course cooking.

Our school is located in a small rural town in central Missouri. Many of my students are living in low income households.

My Project

My students love to learn to sew. I have created a new fashion class this year for my Family and Consumer Science students to take. At the end of the year the students will show off what they have learn with a fashion show.

A dress form would provide my students a way to design and construct a garment.

It would be a visual for my students who are learning how to sew clothing.

For students interested in fashion design as a career, a dress form gives them the opportunity to work with professional equipment that they may use outside of high school.
