TWU Assistant Work
About What I do
My day to day at TWU varies by semester. Both semesters include assisting faculty and staff in various courses. My main goal is to ensure students are understanding the content and help with room management. At times, I will be called on to assist in lectures and demonstrations.
In the spring semesters, I assist in our Event Planning, Fundamentals of Pattern Making, and Production Techniques. For Event Planning, our goal is to produce a well rounded fashion showcase. For our Fundamentals of Pattern Making course, we teach our Freshman level students the basics of patterning so they can start off our program with a strong foundation of understanding pattern making techniques. The merchandising course Production Techniques helps students produce products and build a storefront that will sell these products at the spring fashion showcase.
In the fall semesters, I assist in Fundamentals of Construction, Mass Production Techniques, and Tailoring. The Fundamentals of Construction class is the basics of sewing to ensure that our students grasp and understand key skills of sewing to successfully move forward into the program. Our Mass Production class has developed into a course with a giveback mission. In the spring, we choose a charity or organization to partner with, and teach the students the developmental process of producing a line from conception to consumer. Our Tailoring course teaches students traditional and machine techniques on how to create bespoke and contemporary suiting.
