Ms. Rodriguez from New York NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flex My Seating!

My students need flexible seating. I strongly believe in giving children options about where they do their best work. I have requested flex-space comfy chairs, wobble chairs, and flex-space comfy floor seats.

My Students

English is the second language for most of the students. They come with a desire to learn English as well as doing well in all subjects. This coming September I will have about 25 students sharing one classroom.

It has been an honor to teach the students of my current community for the past 12 years.

They are loving respectful children with tons of interests and life goals. They worked really hard in first grade and they will in second grade too.

My Project

Students of all ages and backgrounds learn differently. I would love for my students to have flexible seating; options other than the standard chairs they have now. Wobble chairs allow movement, flex-space comfy chairs will allow students to read comfortably, and flex-space comfy floor seats will allow students to sit anywhere in the classroom with comfort.

Flexible seating would give my students the ability to choose where they sit to do their best work.

I know I feel better about the work I have to do when I'm given options. Why not have the option to choose where you sit for the majority of your day?
