Mrs. Reese from Greenville SC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

School Counselor Needs Fillings!

My students need recycled shredded memory foam to refill the bean bags they use for flexible seating while in my class.

My Students

It is my honor to serve as the school counselor at a title one elementary school in my community. I teach students from 4 year kindergarten through 5th grade. Our demographics are very diverse, as are the backgrounds of our students.

We are 100% free lunch and many of our students come from homes where there are few positive role models.

My students have a great need for learning personal and social skills that will enable them to work to overcome their current situations.

I love how excited my students are to learn these important skills taught in my classroom. They demonstrate an interest and excitement to learn new things. Many of the lessons taught in my classroom are new to the students and they are empowered by learning these new skills.

My Project

Last year, I implemented flexible seating in my room to enable all age groups to have comfortable seating. It has been a big success; students have been more engaged in the lessons and the number of behavior incidents has decreased. I strive for my classroom to be a comfortable, supportive and safe environment for them. Our flexible seating options encourage students to participate more in our discussions and activities.

By far, bean bags are the preferred option of all age groups and they desperately need to be refilled.

Our second hand bean bags have flattened with use and we would love to refill them with the memory foam pieces, making them more durable over time. In addition to being more durable, the memory foam is also a quieter seat for our students who need to move around to stay focused.

Funding my project will ensure the comfort of my students using them for several years to come.
