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

Exploring New Ideas

My students need a green screen to start their leadership team. We also need stools to allow students to be comfortable while learning!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My class is a fun, outgoing, curious group of 8 and 9-year-olds. Each one of them has their unique strengths and differences. They love to learn, explore, use technology, and ask questions. Our goal is to encourage innovators, creators, and individuals that will change this world!

Each student in my class is unique and learns differently from the next.

Some of my students need supplies to help share their experiences with our school, parents, and the community. My students need recording devices to help become fearless leaders and share their stories!

We are from a small town in Texas trying to do great things!

My Project

My classroom has used flexible seating the last couple years but we are in need of some comfortable stools! Right now our stools are plastic, hard, and too short! We need a green screen to allow us to record our weekly message for our leadership team. With a green screen we can display different backgrounds and create some pretty cool videos for our school to use.

Every classroom is in need of small things that will make a difference.

We need command strips to hold up all the amazing things we make, laminating pouches to laminate our hand outs and visual aids, and also a doorbell to be used as an easy way to transitions students. I have special needs kids in my class so not having to yell or clap to get the student's attention will be a game changer!
