TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students flexible seating and improved lighting so that they are better able to focus in an environment that is compatible with their needs.
I teach high school special education in a school where resources are extremely limited. Students in my classroom are excited to learn. They have a desire to learn how to become a better reader, how to become a better writer, and how to connect socially with others.
They are loving and caring, often more soft-hearted than many of their peers, but due to the extreme circumstances in their lives (homelessness, poverty, and addiction), many have become lost, hard-hearted, and often hopeless about the future.
Yet, I love them all. I love their stories, their minds, their curiosity. I love helping them realize that the future is bright. I enjoy getting to know them, sharing my stories and knowledge with them, and making my classroom one of the few safe places they have.
My students often have a mix of social, emotional, and sensory needs - from academic to behavioral. One of the biggest changes in my classroom was the shift from traditional desks to round tables and yoga ball chairs for seating. However, over the last couple years, I've noticed that some students still require a type of seating that will allow them to rock and move in a way that a traditional chair or yoga ball doesn't allow them to.
Enter wobble chairs with adjustable heights.
Wobble chairs with adjustable heights will allow students who craved a rocking movement to move around while learning without becoming a danger to themselves or others. Adjustable height will allow all of my students the ability to use these chairs in a way that meets their needs.
To top off the new and improve flexible seating in my classroom I want to get away from using the standard fluorescent lights and move to something that will help ease student anxiety in the classroom. Warm lighting with help to create a more cozy and comfortable environment for all students so that they are better able to focus, learn, and create.
