    Hi Everyone!


    Your 7th grade year will focus mainly on career exploration, resume building and machine sewing. Some of the sewing projects we will make are the pin cushion project, a “burrito” pillowcase and an apron, as well as a “community give back project” where we will make items to donate to a community organization in need.

    In 8th grade we will be focusing on interior design, financial literacy and working with food labs.

    Our classroom will primarily be a hands on environment with both labs and projects to explore these many areas. I anticipate that we will have a classroom full of fun and with this expect every student to try his/her best in my classroom and to be supportive of those around them.


    Once again, I look forward to working with you! Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

    ***Though we focus mostly on sewing in 7th grade, I do not require the students to supply the material as they are welcome to utilize what we have in the classroom. However, if anyone has fabric they no longer need/want and would like to donate it to our class supply, I would gladly accept and appreciate
