Are YOU Flexible?

My students need different options for flexible seating, like the director's chair or the balance ball chair so they can work to their fullest potential.

My Students

I am a teacher with students that come from a variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. With these differences everyone has their own set of challenges they face daily. As a teacher I strive to help my students not feel these differences while inside my classroom. In my class the students learn to understand and respect the differences between their peers within our classroom.

My children continue to inspire me to be a better teacher and to help them achieve their greatest potential while in my classroom.

When I first heard about flex seating, I was skeptical about changing from traditional desks into flexible seating. After researching flexible seating, following other teacher’s blogs, and talking to veteran teachers who have incorporated flexible seating into their classrooms, I have never been more excited about starting something new in my class. I cannot wait to see the difference this change to my classroom will make with the students I teach.

My Project

The materials I have asked for will benefit my students because the balance ball chairs will be beneficial for my students with ADD. This chair will allow them to remain seated, which can be hard, because they will still be able to move while not distracting the other students around them.

The stadium seating chairs will allow my students who like to work alone, the ability to move to a corner in my room so they can have their own personal space while still having a comfortable place to sit.

The director's chair will benefit my students who would rather stand at a raised desk an option to sit if and when they get tired.
