In a Fashion Shop, Safety is Necessary!
Since the beginning of our school, back in 1926, the shop safety rules have been taught and tested in paper, quiz format.
Today, as we live in the digital age, Fashion students not only study the safety rules, they reenact them!
They are the actors of their own knowledge and teach the viewer the right way and the wrong way to follow the safety rules of a Fashion shop class.
This is a movie made of Sophomores and Juniors that took the safety rules LIVE!!

Talk about a way to implement curriculum to the REAL WORLD!

I tend to teach my student INDEPENDENCE.
The majority of them are already, yet when it comes to trusting their knowledge, they tend to call on me – (hands up) Ms. CHAVEZ!! Can you help me?
I sometimes joke I should change my name, from the constant repetition
Ms. CHAvez – Ms. CHAVEZ – Ms. ChaVEZ.
Ladies! I interject, trust what you have learned. You can’t go around questioning yourselves. You must learn to be your own judge and jury.
Learn to be constructively critical and develop an eye that can detect what is wrong without anyone else having to tell you.
This is Independence, the ability to make and learn from your mistakes.
DO: Develop your critical eye
DO: Learn from your mistakes
