My Students

I have a very enthusiastic young group of learners. Each and every day they come to school with an I can attitude. As is the case with many students today they all have their unique needs.

My goal through DonorsChoose.org is to help get the classroom materials they need to thrive!

Our parent group is great, but even they need our help through organizations like donors choose to help get all the materials needed to educate their students well.

My Project

I am looking for yoga ball chairs for my classroom. Several of my students have attention or sensory needs. When I have been able to borrow these chairs it has made a big difference in their ability to attend to tasks at hand. I already have spaces where they have flexible seating, but it has not helped them as much as these chairs at their seats have. Sadly, for these students I have had to return the chairs to the classroom they were donated to . I simply want access and equity to what I know will help my students.
