Mrs. Cowan from Corona CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Place I Long To Be!

My students need alternate seating to make the room more comfortable, including Wobble chairs, fitness balls, and Bouncy Bands.

My Students

Each morning, as I greet each and every student with a handshake, I tell them, "Good Morning" and they look so excited to be there as they respond back to me. Many are not just happy with a handshake, they have to give me a hug too. I can tell how happy they are to be at school.

I have taught at the same school for 28 years, and there is no where I would rather be!

I love my job!

My Project

My desires are to have various seating options for students to choose from. They may choose to sit on a yoga ball or a wobble seat. They may choose a regular school chair but have a bouncy band they can rest their feet on on the front of their desks. I want my classroom to feel like home. I want it to give the students a feeling of calm, peace, and safety so that there is nothing getting in the way of their learning.

By have the freedom to choose, they are taking responsibility for their environment and therefore their learning as well.
