My Students

I am a mathematics teacher at Riverview Charter School; one of the best in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. I have wonderful students with a real drive to learn and succeed. I teach three levels of math on a daily basis: Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 Honors and Geometry Honors. We are a hands on math class and I would love to offer my kids a chance to have some flexible seating options.

With more choices, they will be able to find a comfortable option that will help them learn and focus to the best of their ability.

Please consider helping my kiddos with this Donors Choose project.

My Project

Flexible seating has been proven to enhance learning in the classroom so much so that there have been multiple articles written on the topic. As you can see from the photo of my classroom, my students currently only have one, wooden chair option.

I have chosen seats that will provide both comfort to the children and will help with their core muscles and posture.

These inflatable ball chairs will also help those students who have a hard time staying focused and need to move/fidget in order to work on their assignments. I know your donation will go a long way in providing a more enjoyable environment for all my current and future students.
