Ms. Foster from Concord CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating Solutions

My students need drafting stool-chairs to be able to comfortably use our tall standing tables when they would rather sit.

My Students

At heart, my students are just like middle schoolers anywhere in America. They want to fit in. They want to have friends. They want to be able to express their identities. They are excited about learning, but complain about homework. They want to succeed.

And yet, my students struggle with issues that many other students their age do not.

Roughly half of them are English Learners, whether they were born in the U.S. or they have just moved here. Nearly 90% of them live in poverty. They experience racism and classism far too often, and are grossly underestimated by many members of the surrounding community.

My Project

Last year, my school purchased all new classroom furniture, with a focus on flexible seating arrangements. Some of the new furniture are tall tables, meant for students to work at while standing. However, the school did not purchase tall stools or any kind of chairs to use with these tall tables.

My students love the tall tables, and always ask if they can work there - until they realize that they don't want to stand the whole class period.

They soon realize that standing the whole class period isn't necessarily comfortable. Many of my students aren't tall enough to really be able to use the tall tables easily. Or they don't want to stand there every day.

These drawing stool-chairs will provide more seating options for my students, and help the tall tables reach their full potential.
