Mrs. Barayuga from Honolulu HI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Core & Mind

My students need balance ball chairs and balance disks to keep their core and mind engaged. This is also true for little objects to fidget with to keep their thoughts from wandering.

My Students

My students come from military households. Most of them have been at the school for 1-3 years, meaning some may still be acclimating to the school and community environments.

I have a high needs class.

Each student is very unique in their strengths and needs. Each of them have a lot to contribute to the classroom.

My students are eager to learn in their own ways. One loves model drawing, another loves worksheets, and still another loves malipulatives, while another loves to have discussions.

My Project

My teaching is cut out for me, so I joined an exercise studio. I didn't like feeling fatigue at the end of each work day in body and mind. It was a good decision because I have new zest for teaching.

This body and mind connection, if it works for me, it's gonna work for my students.

Kids need to move, they need to engage their physical and mental energy. The balance ball chairs and disks and the fidgets are provoking to the body and mind.

Help me keep my students engaged in learning by donating to my classroom. Mahalo!
