Mrs. Cantrell from Heflin AL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating

My students need flexible seating to maintain their attention by giving them the opportunity to move around and choose seating.

My Students

All of my students are dear to my heart. I love helping them learn not only academic skills, but functional and social skills. We work hard every day to improve academic performance and increase classroom participation. My students are from a rural county with a lot of school pride. Our school is small and I work with about 14 students daily.

My students try their best to learn to the maximum of their ability, and, for that, I am extremely proud.

I help my students in the classroom setting and special education room to obtain their daily and yearly goals. As a special education teacher, I teach students with a variety of disabilities as well as different age groups. At the elementary school I work at, I see students in first through sixth grade. Most of my students are in sixth grade.

My Project

All of my students will benefit from flexible seating in the special education room. The bands for the chairs will help my students move their feet and be able to fidget while staying in their chairs. This will allow students with ADHD and other disabilities to remain focused on the task at hand. The exercise ball bouncy chairs will allow my students an alternative to chairs if they choose. Lastly, the lap desks will allow students another place to sit such as the floor and still be able to bear down on something to do their work.

I want my students to have the option to choose where they sit so that they are comfortable and ready to learn.

Flexible seating also allows students with sensory disorders to choose a place to sit. My students will love that they have the choice to sit in a chair with a band, sit on the floor with a lap desk, or sit on the exercise ball bouncy chair.
