My Students

I am a middle school teacher and I teach 6th and 8th grade. HCMS is a 6th-8th grade school. Our students are very interested in having clubs but they want clubs that interest them.

HCMS is home to many military students which makes our student population very diverse.

Middle school is often a tough time for most students and being able to associate something they love with school helps the time go a little more gracefully.

As a school we are trying to diversify our clubs and provide more opportunities for our students. We aim to make school more than just learning standards and material but also a place to learn life skills and lessons and allow the student to take the lead on their life choices and efucation.

My Project

Our students have been interested in clubs but have really been wanting something that would be VERY interesting. The art of sewing is a lost art that I would love to bring back and teach our young ones. We have some very creative minds and everyone should learn how to sew on a button at the very least.

Sewing will bring a very diverse group of students together and will allow the art of expression.

I have been sewing for about 7 years and I am a huge Crafter. I would love to spread the joy on to students.

I will be starting a Sewing/Craft club where the students will learn to sew certain garments and will learn how to customize t-shirts, hats, mugs, etc using a Cricut and a sewing machine. Ultimately, I am hoping to hold a fashion show/ Craft fair at the end of the school year to allow the students to show off their creations.
