Ms. Clark from Oakland MD is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sweet Seating!

Help me give my students comfort when they are struggling! Students in my school, especially PreK and Kindergarten, need movement which can be provided on a comfy rug, in a swing, or a wobble seat!

My Students

My school is located in rural appalachia. We educate and love all students from grades PreK to fifth grade. Many of the students come from impoverished families so we provide both free breakfast and lunch to them.

We have many students who have been diagnosed with PTSD and demonstrate many behaviors associated with trauma.

We also have many students who have been directly affected by the opiod crisis that has had a devastating effect on our community, county, state, and regional area.

Our students deserve the very best that we can offer them, and we strive every day to provide an environment that supports students so that they are ready to learn!

My Project

Students in my rural area come from homes filled with trauma and opioid addiction. Many students live in non-traditional homes including grandparents, aunts and uncles, foster homes, and group homes. These students struggle to be ready to learn academics.

Our Sensory Room provides the opportunity for children to relax, calm their fears, and be prepared to go into their classroom and learn!

Lying on a rug while watching a bubble lamp, swinging in a swing, or sitting on a wobble stool while playing in kinetic sand has a way of making the children in my school feel better!

All children have different needs which is why I choose different items to help meet those needs. We have found if we meet their basic needs first, then they are ready to learn!
