Ms. Szczepanski from Lutz FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Middle School Students

My students need these wonderful options for flexible seating to broaden their horizons and give them options that will help them focus. I believe if Middle School students have choices it allows them to start gaining.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are just the best! I have been teaching 6th grade for five years and I just love the 6th grade age. These kids deserve to be able to be comfortable in the classroom and enjoy learning. I believe when you are comfortable in an environment you can begin to let go and learn! Please help my students become better learners.

My goal is to make history come alive and have these students become the thinkers of the future!

My Project

These materials will be great to help my students gain independence and have the ability to have choices instead of basic seating in desks. The laptop desks will allow the students to work all over the room and be comfortable. The sensory seats will allow my students some kind of cushion to sit on and also allow them to work on their balance. The butterfly chairs and stools allow for different options of seating for my students. This new generation learns differently and I want to be able to engage them while making them feel like they have some choices where they might not have before. My project will allow for separate learning spaces and allow students to work cooperatively with others. Flexible seating allows students to find comfortable positions through the classroom. Comfortable students are calm, focused and productive learners! Please help the future leaders in my room!

Please help out some amazing students!
