Ms. Reza from Charlotte NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Big Joes for Big Readers

My students need more comfy seating throughout our classroom to enjoy their books during their reading time.

My Students

I work for a title 1 school in Charlotte. These students come from all ranges of socioeconomic backgrounds. Our school offers free breakfast and lunch to all or our students due to the huge need. Some kids aren't able to buy all of their supplies. I am very fortunate to be able to have access to supplies for the students so that if a child does come without things they won't have to stress about finding the way to get it.

However, I do have to work with a very strict budget, its no secret that teachers don't get a huge paycheck and do need to ask for help with little extra things that I may not be able to pay with money not already being spent on other supplies.

I definitely am thankful for all the help my past donors have given!

My students always come so eager to learn, and read, and get as much from the school day as they possibly can. This is what makes teaching so much fun seeing these kids throughout the week grow and learn from the beginning to the end of the school year.

My Project

My past students loved the Big Joe chairs that we received through Donors Choose last year, a little too much since they are already in need of more beads to keep their shape. I would love it if I could get more kids in comfy seating as well, this would allow every student to have somewhere to sit during their long reading time. I am asking for two more Big Joe chairs and some refill beads to help keep their shape throughout the year. The students enjoy getting to sit in them and I know that I would appreciate the extra seating choices as well. I do have various pillows that I have bought or have been given but they really love those Big Joe seats. Thank you so much for your help.
