Ms. Mueller from Denver CO is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating a More Motivating and Focused Environment

My students need flexible seating options. These cushions help students fidget while they work, which helps them focus. We also need a book shelf to display books of the month.

My Students

I teach in a Title 1 School where 98.5% of students are on free or reduced lunch. My students come from a variety of cultural and economic backgrounds. Many of my students hope to be the first generation to go to college in their family!

We are working tirelessly to educate and prepare them to be productive members of society.

They are a group of kind, inspiring, and hard working kids! Thank you for your support of these wonderful kiddos!

My Project

The cushions help tremendously for students who struggle to sit still. They are able to have some movement without distracting the students around them. The cushions go right onto our classroom chairs. This helps to keep them discrete so that the students using them don't stand out. The cushions help students stay engaged so that they are able to learn.

Our bookshelf would display books that are related to topics we are learning about that month.

It will also contain books about our monthly character strength. The goal is to give students exposure to literature they might not pick on their own.
