Mr. Schleicher from Marlette MI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Marlette's Best!

Help me give my students the freedom of flexible seating. My goal is to switch to flexible seating as soon as possible.

My Students

I get to teach the best class of third graders! They are so passionate about learning and they work tremendously hard to gain knowledge. They take advantage of any opportunity they can to grow as students and as people.

Although my students work tremendously hard, our community is not blessed with money flowing out of the coffers.

We could do so much more with donations to provide valuable tools to these students. We get tremendous support from our community, but I am hoping to go the extra mile with Donor'schoose.

My Project

These materials will allow for me to have a flexible seating arrangement in my classroom. This will give my students the ability to make choices about their learning and also be as comfortable as need be.

Science has shown that the flexible seating model gets solid results in testing data, so I want to incorporate these good ideas into what I do in my classroom.

By changing the set up from a traditional classroom to flexible seating my students should be able to achieve more. Please make a donation today to help my students reach their maximum potential. Thank you.
