Ms. Boland from Elkhart IN is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

HELP! First Year Teacher...Flexible Seating is Key!!!

My students need stability balls and wobble cushions to help them focus throughout the school day. This will help them in the long run be more successful in their school work.

My Students

This is my first year teaching and these students will benefit from this more than you could ever imagine. I am trying my hardest to fund the essentials for the classroom, but I want the students to have an engaging and fun experience in 3rd grade. These projects will help get flexible seating into my classroom.

The school has students from diverse backgrounds, that need your help to make their 3rd grade year the best one yet.

There are students who have parents that have money to help them be successful in school, there are students who are able to get the essentials for school but nothing more, and then there are students who do not have any financial stability in their life at all.

I believe that every single type of student could benefit from this and will be successful because of it.
