Ms. Dana Nielsen from San Diego CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

I teach a wonderful group of second grade students in a multi-culturally diverse school in San Diego with over 30 languages, and 80 dialects! This diversity fosters acceptance, tolerance, and compassion toward others. We work hard to promote a challenging and positive environment for all students, that focuses on academic excellence and equity for all students.

Our overall goal is to develop critical thinkers who take an active role in their own learning and make a positive impact in the world.

I love my job and look forward each year to helping my students reach their fullest potential.

My Project

21st Century students deserve a 21st century classroom that allows multiple learning activities to occur simultaneously. The environment should allow for a variety of learning spaces and grouping formats that consider all learning styles.

I want to create a classroom environment that is conducive to open collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking.

Flexible seating like wobble chairs, pillows, and comfy floor chairs will help our classroom environment reach this goal.

Research says that some of the immediate benefits of flexible seating include using excess energy to focus, increased motivation and engagement, and creating a better oxygen flow to the brain. Flexible seating will allow my students to wiggle, wobble, and focus!
