These 7th graders are full of life and have a natural, although reserved, curiosity about their world. I work as one of three College and Career Awareness teachers that reach all of the 7th grade students in our school. I help them explore pathways such as Textiles, Food and Nutrition, Education as a career, Agriculture and some Health Science.
They love to get involved and experience what might happen in the careers that we are exploring.
As they create projects, do assignments and discover their likes and dislikes they gain confidence and skills that they can use at any time in their life.
It's so rewarding to see them proudly show off something they have made as they've created something from what we've been learning.
Having a creative outlet while learning about careers is something my students look forward to in my College and Career Awareness class. Every time I pull out supplies to do a hands-on project the students get excited at the possibilities.
These high quality and fun sewing supplies light the excitement in my students to be creative as they explore careers and increase their manual dexterity while making a sewing project.
When students are excited about the project then it seems more like play and they are more productive and engaged. The sewing tools help the beginning sewers to have a more positive experience and maintain the flow of things because many of the items break with normal wear and tear and the occasional accident. By having these supplies, I can keep machines running and my students moving forward.
