My Students

Our school is a great place where our students are eager to learn. Our school is a welcoming environment with a strong belief in building on the talents and experiences of our diverse student population. 76.5% of our students come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, 25% are English learners, and more than 96% are students of color.

My class is made up of twenty-four students who are ready to learn and eager to work.

These flexible seating options will brighten up their day.

My Project

The 2 options I am hoping to receive will help my students choose a flexible seat and help them learn. The balance ball chair has high ratings in flexible seating. It helps students move, wiggle and improve their posture. This chair will also keep them safe and focused while they work. The seat cushion will allow students to sit anywhere in the class comfortably.

The Gaiam Classic Balance Ball Chair is an alternative to a desk chair for those students who wish to move while working.

It will also increase productivity with an active body and a focused and engaged mind. These materials will make a difference in my classroom by allowing my students to release their energy and focus on their work.
