Mrs. Hermens from Leesburg VA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating - Elevate Student Engagement AND Choice!

My students need flexible seating items, such as Zenergy Ball Chairs and Wobble Stools, to increase their ability to focus by engaging their cores while also giving sensory stimulation to learners who easily lose focus.

My Students

My learners are inquisitive, kind, enthusiastic, articulate and diverse. They work as a team, supporting one another. Some find academics fun and easy, while others need extra support from me and their peers to understand new concepts.

Together the students and I create a safe and nurturing environment where children are free to take risks and ask for help!

This is critical because our classroom embraces learners who enter the room with and without special needs. They are all simply amazing young human beings.

My Project

Please help me to acquire flexible seating choices that will allow my magnificent learners to choose seats that will increase their attention and comfort during the school day. I currently have several cozy seating options for working on the floor, but my class is in need of desk-level seating that will engage students' cores while giving sensory stimulation to encourage focus.

Flexible seating allows students to choose what feels best for their individual learning styles!

I would be so grateful for your support, and know that your kindness will be met with huge smiles and excitement when the furniture arrives!
