Ms. Galster from Dallas TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating

My students need comfortable places to sit to be able to do their best. Typical seating does not fit all children's needs, which is why I am asking for flexible seating.

My Students

I haven’t met my students for this coming school year yet, but am very excited to welcome them into a warm and inviting classroom with new supplies for them to start the year off right! I will have a group of 21-second​ graders for half of the day and a group of 21 first and second graders combined for the other half of the day. My students and I are in a Title 1 school in Texas. Thanks for your consideration!

My Project

Many of my students have a difficult time staying focused on​ typical school seats, so I want to offer them Bean bag chairs that set them up for success. I strive to make my classroom as welcoming as possible, and one way of achieving this goal is to have comfortable seating options. I am at a title 1 school and will be teaching two grade levels this year, so I will need all the support I can get when it comes to giving the children choices that are safe and developmentally appropriate. I really appreciate anything you are able to donate to help my students reach their full potential.
