My Students

My students are amazing. Each and every one of them are scholars. They are socially conscious and academically inclined. They are readers, artists, scientists and engineers. My students attend the library not only for academic purposes, but also to participate in the many community outreach programs we offer. As a librarian, I am determined to create a welcoming environment for all students so they have the opportunity to exchange ideas, learn from one another, and grow as a community. We hope to increase our MakerSpace with your help!

My Project

American students taking a Japanese class should learn so much more than just the language. I am going to be teaching students the ancient art of Japanese sashiko or embroidery.

Teaching this project based learning activity provides Japanese language students with an opportunity to use their hands.

Studies show that hand embroidering provides the same benefits as meditation. Educators are also aware that there has been an increased use of smart phones and other electronics by teens. These same teens are experiencing higher than average levels of anxiety and depression. Teaching students to hand embroider sashiko will help alleviate the side effects of the over use of electronics.
