Wilmer-Hutchins Elementary Crochet Club makes hats, scarves for homeless shelter


It’s a Tuesday afternoon at Wilmer-Hutchins Elementary School, and eight fifth-graders are meticulously crocheting hats and scarves.

Charlotte Geisler, the Wilmer-Hutchins Elementary Campus Teacher of the Year, leads the club that meets after lunch. Geisler makes monthly trips to a homeless shelter to donate the hats and scarves made by the students.

“This not only teaches students a skill they can use for life, but it teaches them to give back,” Geisler said.

For fifth-grader Daranisha, the club is a chance to have quiet time to reflect.

“If I’m in a bad mood or having a bad day, this helps relax me and makes me feel better,” she said. “Also, it’s fun!”
