Ms. Rodgers from Cooper City FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

I love my students! The 18 students in my class are kind, curious, and they drive and desire to do their personal best and work hard every single day! In my class, we value respect, hard work, and a strong sense of family. We are a family in my classroom.

My students are amazing and unique in their own way.

My goal is to teach them the skills necessary to become successful in every avenue of their lives from this day forward while smiling, laughing, and learning. We are diverse and excited and ready to learn. This group of gifted Third graders is ready to keep growing and thriving.

My Project

In a classroom full of gifted and high achieving minds it can be difficult to define the "perfect working spot" because it is different for everyone! Some of my students like using a beanbag, while others prefer to stay at their desks. I want my students to grow in all areas of their learning, and I want to provide them with a variety of work spaces in our room.

My students will love being able to choose seating options as they work independently in our classroom, and unfortunately many classrooms follow a model that looks the same as it did 70 years ago.

Students are sitting in desks and chairs all day, and many are struggling to stay focused. Many adults do not work all day sitting down at a desk, and my students will not work that way when they leave school and enter the workforce. I want to provide them with a variety of seating choices so they have an option to choose what works best for them as an individual student. My students need a variety of seating options to help them explore, create, and continue to become college and career ready adults.

Through research, I have seen fantastic results from classrooms with open seating options for their students. I know my students would benefit as well.
