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

Let's Get Flexible!

My students need a space where they can learn best! Flexible seating such as Wobble chairs and cushions will give them that opportunity.

My Students

I have a big group of 27 students! Most of which are English language learners, (over 7 different languages). My students are strong, encouraging, and passionate about their education. They work hard and strive to learn more than they did they day before. They do it for themselves, but for their families as well. Most of my students help translate for their parents/families when they leave the school. Many daily tasks that we complete are much more difficult for families that do not speak English. My students take on such an important role for their families when they leave my classroom.

My students inspire me to be a better teacher and to provide them with the best education possible.

I want the kids to understand that their hard work inside and outside of the classroom doesn't go unnoticed. They are loved and will feel at home in my classroom.

My Project

As a teacher, my job is to stay up to date with the best educational practices. A popular notion of “flexible seating” has been high on the list for some time. The idea that we can move away from a traditional seating chart and provide a space where children can choose their own seating. My hope is to design a space where the children can remain actively engaged, collaborate with their peers, and communicate effectively. It is my hope that I can add many unique areas in my room that appeal to every type of learner.

During my quadrant time of teaching, I hope to see active participation from students utilizing the different types of seating such as yoga balls, wobble chairs, or even disc cushions.

I see this project as an opportunity for myself, other teachers, and students to grow. To me, flexible seating is a movement. I purchased six yoga balls for my classroom this year. I have seen how this supports different modes of learning. I want my students to remember that it is important to find what works best for them to make them successful.
