Ms. Jackson from Mobile AL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexibility Matters

Help me give my students the ultimate flexibility to move during instruction. Students should not be expected to sit still during instruction and I would like for my students to have sits that allow them to move.

My Students

I have the pleasure of teaching two classes. One class is a group of 15 and the other class is a group of 21. I teach these students math and science. Both groups live in the same areas. Most of my students come from low income households.

These students are innovative learners at heart!

They are excited and ready to learn when they enter my classroom. They expect the most out of the day. These students are driven future leaders!

My Project

These items will provide my students would the flexibility to move around during instruction. I'm sure my students' faces will lite up when they see the many different types of flexible seating that will be available for them to sit on. The fidget tools (toys) will also allow my students to move their hands quietly as they work on their assignments and/or listen to their classmates and I teach and/or have discussions in class. My students will really enjoy the variety of flexible seating that will be provided to them, if and when this project is funded. Thank you for your participation.
