Mrs. Corley from Orange TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The majority of my students have faced challenges and have been affected by Hurricane Harvey and the floods that followed. Many of my students are not in their homes or are living in less than perfect conditions. My students in Orangefield, Texas are strong and resilient. They have been through so much and I want them to be excited about coming to school each day. Creating an environment for them to feel successful is of the upmost importance in achieving this.

My Project

Having flexible seating options for today's learners will make a difference in my classroom. Students will be able to move around more and learn in the best possible space for them.

I have chosen a flexible seating library area in my classroom that includes bean bag and saucer chairs to boost reading skills and enjoyment.

I want to include a space where students can read and feel comfortable learning.
