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

Unique Needs Spaces

My students need seating options and light filters to promote a safe space for motivated learning.

My Students

These hands-on learners are exploring universal work skills in our own community. Many students are placed in a real work setting on an individual basis. Several students remain with the classroom teacher to gain work and adult life-related skills. Students are working towards pre-training employment standards and universal work skills. Their skills and interests are matched to community partners. They interview with a local business for an individual placement when they are ready for that step.

By the end of my transition program education, I will become a contributing member of my community by actively participating as a citizen, employee, family member, consumer, and friend.

Our mission statement drives us to become better than we were yesterday.

My Project

I need to address the unique learning styles of many students in one space. Part of this challenge is that all students aren't comfortable in traditional desks. I want to seize this opportunity to motivate my students by offering flexible seating options. The second part of this is that there are harsh fluorescent lights without a dual switch in the classroom.

Overhead light filters would be an excellent addition to ease light-sensitive eyes.

The classroom is one part of a larger program designed to prepare students for adult life goals. Those goals range from being a healthy individual keeping a schedule that is meaningful to them, to working competitively in the community.

Some of our students will work on various tasks within the school building on a rotating schedule. Others, based on skill and interests, will interview and be placed in community sites to work at those locations with our community partners.

Students are all in the "home" classroom for many reasons. I have guest speakers scheduled throughout the year, there are final exams, or scheduled days off and in those cases, there are stations and spaces for individual and small group or large group instruction. In those instances and for those students who remain in class on a daily basis for instruction, I want to introduce flexible seating options and light filtering sheers to promote comfort and motivate my student learners to do their best work.
