Ms. Parker from Ridgeland SC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Read in Comfort

My students need comfortable and flexible seating to go with their love of reading in the classroom.

My Students

I'm currently teaching 15 gifted and talented students. My students are excelling in all subject areas and constantly need to be challenged. They are unique and have a wide range of learning styles and abilities. These students are very bright, hardworking, and dedicated learners. They love reading, solving challenging math problems, and learn best through hands on engaging activities. I love that they are eager to learn and have a positive attitude towards school. My students are well behaved and are leaders on the right path to academic success.

My Project

My number one goal is to do what's in the best interest of students. Adding flexible seating in the classroom will add more options for students to feel comfortable and relaxed while doing what they love to do. My students currently have limited reading areas to choose from that are warm and cozy.

Having bean bags in the classroom will allow students the freedom to read independently in a spot that is best suited for their learning needs.

They will enjoy having a choice and would love being able to relocate their seat as needed to select a successful spot to read and will help build their stamina.
