Ms. Trinidad from Bronx NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Believe in Yourself and You Will Be UNSTOPPABLE!

My students need bean bag chairs, balance balls and lap desks, to learn in an environment that meets their individual needs. With your help, they will have choices and increase their engagement in the classroom by having flexible seating/learning options.

My Students

I am a special education teacher who services 3rd and 4th grade students in the Bronx, NY. Besides their academic needs, my students face challenges in and out of school. These challenges can sometimes hinder there learning and it is my job, as their classroom teacher, to help ease their frustrations, obstacles and allow them to have the best learning experience in the 6.5 hours we spend together daily.

My students are the smartest, most creative, passionate, funny and motivated kids in the Bronx.

Asking any child to sit still for an extended period of time is tall order, when you mix that request with a child who struggles with a learning disability it is nearly impossible.

My goal is to build a flexible and engaging classroom for my students. I envision them having choices for learning, being engaged, on task and learning to be the best people they can possibly be.

My Project

With your help, my students will be able to learn the best way they know how, while moving! Portable desks will allow them to continue learning when their emotions escalate and they crave time separated from the rest of the class. Bean bags will allow them to regulate their bodies and give them the security they need to continue learning. Pedals for under their desks will allow my constant movers that stimulation they need to keep going. Allowing my students different options, gives them ownership of their learning. Since each of my students have their own individual and emotional needs, these options will give them what they need to be successful in their learning every day.
