Ms. Golden from Moundville AL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Scientists Looking for New Seats!

My students need chairs in order to have a supportive learning environment.

My Students

My students attend high school at a title 1 school in a rural community. The school recently merged with another school because the district struggles financially and was unable to keep both schools opened.

In addition, I am the biology and anatomy teacher to 200 plus students each year.

Due to the financial struggles of my school, we do not have the proper seating for my students. The students I teach are often in broken chairs, chairs without backs, or folding chairs while trying to futher their education. Seating is costly but I believe that my students deserve a place to sit without worring if it is going to break today. I plan to write projects in order to level the playing field and give my students the best opportunities possible. We have a lot of parental support and students are motivated to learn and better themselves for the future.

My Project

My students are in need of fifteen new chairs for our science classroom. Our school is a Title 1 school where our funding is extremely limited. Our students need chairs that are not falling apart.

My students should be able to walk into class and not have to worry about whether or not they will be in a chair that is going to pinch them or break when they sit in it.

Too many times this year, I have watched a student sit down and the chair hit the ground because it was worn out. Proper seating would allow students a supportive learning environment where they can further their education.
