Mrs. Hardy from Merritt Island FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for a 21st Classroom

My students need stools, a table, and chairs to create a classroom designed with their success in mind.

My Students

My students are hard workers. They are among the rare teens that love school; they are good at it. The majority of my high school students are considered some the top performers in the country on state and national tests. The average SAT score for my current junior cohort is 1350. They love to learn, and I love to teach them. They are ready for any task I throw at them including analyzing difficult authors such as Shakespeare, Hawthorne, and Chaucer.

My students never cease to amaze me!

They continue to outperform my greatest expectations. They do not shy away from challenges, and I am often greeted with "Okay, what's next?" Whether it's a research paper, a rhetorical analysis of Capote, or crafting the next piece of poetry, my students make every assignment their best work.

My Project

The idea of flexible seating is a standard in every office building in this country. No professional goes to a job in which they have to cramp their bodies into a tiny chair attached to an even smaller work space. Professionals are given the opportunity to adjust chairs, get in and out of their workspace without hindrance, and spread their work out on a space large enough to accommodate their needs. This should be the same for school, especially for high school students.

The most important job any student should have is excelling in school.

This project is going to offer the students in my secondary English classroom a workspace that accommodates for their needs. I plan to do away with the tiny desks and put in a table built for their size and comfort. The chairs and stools will offer the opportunity for them to focus on their work and not on the fact that most of their bodies are hanging off these petite, plastic seats. A good education is vital to the success of all citizens, and students should be given an opportunity to maximize their work space with a classroom designed with them in mind.
