Mrs. Beleche from San Diego CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Just the Little Things

Help me give my students the best school experience by giving them a classroom that makes them feel at home. They need a designated place to sit when doing whole group activities!

My Students

I am currently a Mild/Moderate Special Education Teacher at a Title 1 school. My students range from Kindergarten to 5th grade. They are the truly one of a kind. I have been teaching at various school over the last few years and I have finally found my home. These students have really touched my heart. My students have showed me true compassion and love. They have showed me the true reason I became a special education teacher.

Working at a title one school can be very difficult at times but the love I receive from my students is priceless.

The students are very positive about life and how successful they will become in the future despite their circumstances. Most of the students that I work with come to school hungry, scared, worried, and at times not the cleanest. I have provided them with a food basket, wipes, and a safe place for them to come during the day. My students know that I will get them anything if they need it.

My students are resilient and have made so many gains since working with them. The students with disabilities need the most support and care.

My Project

These items will enhance my students learning and experience at school. My students come from a low income area and have disabilities. They need a place at school where they can feel safe and comfortable. My classroom is used for small group instruction with student's with IEP, a place for DE-escalation of behaviors, and the safe place when things are not going their way.

Having an inviting and comfortable atmosphere in my classroom is a way that I can reach my students on a deeper level.

The population that I work with need my support and care before they are able to learn. With these items I can meet the needs of each student giving them the best opportunity to learn. Having essential supplies like pencils and organizers help them stay organized for their class and goals. Having essentials like toothpaste and deodorant will make their daily lives better at school. They will not be made fun of. They say that a student's personal needs need to be met before they can learn. Being a special education teacher and working with so many students it is important that I give them the best chance.

The sensory items will help my students when they are with me but I can also transfer them to their general education class so they can be the most successful there as well. The students need more support in the classroom and these items will help them with that. The flexible seating can be moved from place to place to allow them to use it in different settings. I am trying to provide my students with the best care so that they can be successful in school.
