Ms. Nagata from San Francisco CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexing Our Mind and Body!

My students need two buoy chairs and two sit up pillows to provide them another seating option instead of using chairs.

My Students

My students come into their classroom every morning excited to see what they would be learning that day. They are the type of students that can spend one hour discussing the Constitution and still want to learn more about it.

Some of my students spend more than an hour on the bus every day in order to go to and from school.

Even with the long commute, they are eager to deepen their education and will not hold back in order to do just that. My students are working hard every day to learn new skills so that, one day, they will become the successful person they envision to become.

My Project

My classroom has some flexible seating options but not enough for most of my students. I'm requesting two buoy chairs and two sit-up pillows.

In the past couple months after converting my classroom into a flexible seating classroom, I have seen significant changes in their behavior and work ethic.

For example, they are more engaged in class discussions and can easily focus on their task.

All of my students want to succeed in their academics but sometimes do not know why they can't focus. With that, I would like to provide as many students with the opportunity to use these chairs and pillows to help them focus and feel successful.
