Mrs. LaCross from Virginia Beach VA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Pick a Seat, Any Seat!

My students need balance ball chairs and stools for flexible seating options to work out the wiggles as they work.

My Students

My students arrive every morning with a smile on their faces and ready to learn! My class is made up of different abilities, comfort learning levels, and all with amazing personalities and talents that make each student unique. I am fortunate to be at a school where we receive great support and have a huge group of cheerleaders in our parents and staff as we embark on our path of learning. Our positive mindset and eagerness to face challenges keep us a top performing school in the area. We have so much to discover this year!

My students make me proud everyday!

These deep thinkers, curious questioners, respectful communicators and kind humans make the classroom our school family. I am excited to be able to have the opportunity to guide them along their journey. They inspire me and I want to be able to give them a safe, exciting, and encouraging learning environment as they continue down the road to their bright futures.

My Project

Students work best when they have choices. My project will help students by giving them choice while working on assignments around the room. All students need a comfortable seat while working to do their very best. Sometimes, this means a place to work out their wiggles. These flexible seating options give students a safe choice, whether working around the room or at their desks.

Gaiam Balance Ball Chairs and Regency wobble stools provide stimuli for active students while keeping them safe.

Too many times I have had to tell a wiggly student to sit correctly in their chair to avoid falling over. These seating options give them the movement they need, while keeping the learning environment safe for all students.
