Mrs. Martin from Huntsville TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Nobody Wants to be in a Boring Room!

Help me give my students a fun learning environment! The students are here for 40 hours a week. For many of them this is their safe haven. I would love to add a splash of color with wobble chairs and tables!

My Students

My students walk into my classroom every day ready to learn and excited about the day. Each day I strive to make sure my students know that when they are in my classroom and in our school, they are safe and loved.

I teach at a Title I school in Texas where the majority of our students receive free lunch and face much adversity outside of school.

Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful in the future.

My Project

I would like to add a pop of color with a round table and an octagon table. I will use the Kore Kids wobble chairs for our small group work stations. These are wonderful for children who struggle to remain still in their seats. I want the students to enjoy their learning environment.

I work in a Title 1 school where more than seventy five percent of our students live in poverty and receive free school breakfast, lunch ans second lunch before they leave.

Many of my students find my classroom to be their safe place.

Our school and our students were effected by Harvey.
