Mrs. Kantola from Ravenna MI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Take Comfort in Learning

Help me give my students a comfortable, fun way to encourage reading and learning. So many of my children are looking for more relaxing ways to accommodate their learning style, that flexible seating seems to be the answer!

My Students

In a world filled with reluctant students, meet my energetic learners. They are eager to learn and love any new challenge given to them. Unfortunately, they are missing many of the resources to make this possible many times.

These kids love everything I can expose them to, but this can be quite limited at times.

These children are the heartbeat of our future. They are everything we hope for in learners and are eager to prove they can make a difference.

My Project

Middle school can be such a tough time to find your "nitch" in life, learning, and just becoming who you need to be. What used to work no longer seems to be viable in today's learning environment. Our classroom is no exception. So many of my children struggle with learning the conventional way and need to be enticed with more flexible options. Often, they beg for the only different seats in the classroom, which are very limited at this point.

This project is an effort to allow for more children's learning styles to be accommodated while continuing the outstanding learning environment where we can all thrive.

With just these two different options, we can add four more options to the already evolving room of learners. Help us make middle school a learning experience they will grow in and never forget!
