Mrs. Perok from Charleroi PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating Promotes Flexible Learning

My students need eight stools with comfortable seats to provide opportunities for flexible seating.

My Students

I teach two groups of fourth grade students. Our district is in a low income, rural, economically depressed area of Pennsylvania. My students may be economically disadvantaged, but they deserve the same learning experiences as all other students across the United States.

Sixty-two percent of my students receive both free breakfast and lunch, as well as backpack food every weekend.

Our school runs this free food program because our students wouldn't have enough food to eat throughout the weekend break away from school if we didn't step in and supply it. Being a child today is not an easy task. Despite these many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they will be successful students.

My Project

I hope to provide my students with tractor style stools as an option for their flexible seating tables. Allowing the students to have different seating choices will help them develop ownership of their learning space while also learning to make responsible decisions that best benefits them.

By donating to our project, you will be helping expand student engagement, helping students develop responsibility within their choices, and promoting students to actively make decisions about their own education.

Many students simply get bored sitting in the same seat all day, while others are clearly uncomfortable on the floor. Although I already provide several seating options in my classroom, I wish to expand my students' options even further. With your help, students will be able to learn in an engaging atmosphere with tractor seat stools.
