My Students

I teach at an NAESP-member school in the city of Memphis. My students come from all different backgrounds and each student has many different needs. I want the very best for my students, and I want to see them grow daily in their learning! We need your help in funding this project. I am always looking for resources and ways to bring fun, differentiated, and engaged learning into our classroom for my students. Please help me to provide my students with floor seating in our classroom!

My Project

Research shows that allowing students to sit in comfortable, flexible seating options greatly enhances their focus. With a fulfilled project, my classroom would change quite a bit. These options will allow them to become more comfortable, find a responsible working space and get the most out of our work times and classroom activities.

First graders tend to have a hard time sitting in desks all the time so with this project I am able to give them another option.

The carpet squares will allow my students to find their own space in the classroom without having to sit on the tile floor. My students will be able to work with a seating option that allows them to focus and stay comfortable. Both of which are needed to produce quality work.

However, for those times where I need them to be in their desk, the fidget bands will allow them to get their wiggles out while sitting in their chair. These bands help them to focus without being loud or having to get up. It helps them move their legs whenever needed.

Please consider donating to this project so that I can give my students the learning environment they deserve!
