Mr. George from Charlotte NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

More Flexible Seating

My students need flexible seating options. These "wobble" chairs will be great additions to my flexible seating. It will also be great to have more camp chairs and lap desks for a different option.

My Students

My school is a very unique school in our large urban district. It is made up of a very diverse group of students that nearly mirrors the make-up of our city. Most schools in our district are divided by class, race and socio-economic status. However, our school has a broad range of cultures, races, ethnicities and socio-economic groups.

We are a "salad bowl" that brings students together in a strong learning environment.

With this diverse student body, I find it helpful to create a comfortable learning environment. The students appreciate this alternative setting.

My Project

Last year I started a flexible seating layout for my high school students. It was a big success. Students were more comfortable and eager to come to class; which made them more engaged and more interested in learning.

This year I would like to expand my flexible seating options for my students.

While I do have some more "traditional " desks in my class, I noticed that most students gravitated to the less traditional seats. I would like to add "wobble" chairs, more camp seats and lap desks for the classroom.

With the addition of new options, I think that my students will be able to focus better which will lead to greater achievement.
