Ms. Villareal from Brownsville TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Take a Seat!

Help me give my students different seating My students love the idea for them to have different seating options. I know that giving my students the option of sitting on a ​wobble chair can enhance their learning.

My Students

My students are one of a kind, self-centered, energized, lovable and caring. They are full of curiosity and are little sponges waiting to absorb anything given to them to learn. As a classroom and their teacher, we like to explore different ways we can interact and become better learners.

I teach in the lower Rio Grande Valley in Texas.

Our district is 97% economically disadvantaged. This, however, does not stop us from always striving to do our best. My students do not know what economically disadvantaged means so there​ is no excuse not to succeed. In school and in our classroom, we are equal and we all have different learning styles and we use it to our advantage to succeed.

I know that my students will excel in everything they set their mind to. They will become lifelong learners, with the right direction and education.

My Project

Having flexible seating in my classroom will help my students find their preferential learning style. We all know some of us to learn better standing up, while others learn better sitting down in a comfortable seat. It is important to me as a teacher help them reach their full potential.

All students should be able to succeed in school, having different seating styles for each learner, can enhance their learning.

My goal as a student is to help each and every one​ of my students become lifelong learners. With your help, I know that this can be possible. Help me give my students their seat!
