Ms. Geeck from Chalmette LA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

I teach a wonderful group of 3rd grade students at a school in St. Bernard Parish. These children have a love for learning that continues to inspire me on a daily basis. I am always trying to find fun and inventive ways to push them to their full potential.

My students are intelligent, creative, and courageous.

They enjoy working diligently with their peers and reading various novels. They truly are our future and I am honored to be their teacher!

My Project

During independent reading time, my students have the opportunity to select a spot that inspires them to read. I am hoping that by providing flexible seating they will have a wide variety of choices when it comes to finding that perfect spot.

My students will love to sit in a wobble seat while working with me at my teacher table during reading centers.

They will also be able to utilize the beanbags when they are reading independently. Having the chance to be creative in their seating choices excites them and promotes reading. Please help me provide a cozy and comfortable classroom for my students!
