My Students

We are a title one school in North Fort Myers, Florida. Our students are low income and live in a pretty tough area. All of our students are on the free breakfast and lunch program. Our teachers do what it takes to make our students successful.

Being a title one school is a challenge; many of our students are from broken homes where a single mom or dad has to work most of the time just to pay the rent and put food on the table.

We try to make our school their second home; a safe place to spend eight hours a day, eat breakfast and lunch and experience opportunities that they otherwise wouldn't have means to do at home.

My Project

I can't wait to teach the students to sew and crochet. They will be using yarn to crochet blankets and need fabric to sew dresses for children in shelters or homeless.

The students will cut fabric and learn how to sew it onto a t-shirt that turns into a little dress.

This will create a cute dress that they can pass on to children in need.

Through doing this, the students will learn the life long skill of crocheting and sewing for others.

Upon completing the projects, we will find the right group to pay it forward by giving our projects away.
