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

We're Super Flexible (Ft. Seating)

Help me give my students flexible seating (floor pillows, a floor table, a futon, and chair bands) that allows them to thrive in a calm, focused, and productive learning environment.

My Students

My students attend a Title I charter school in Houston, Texas where nearly 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Despite facing hardships and adversity, my students are committed to becoming high school ready, college bound, are eager to learn, and always give one hundred percent.

Many of our students, teachers, and staff lost many things during Hurricane Harvey.

While our community has experienced so much devastation as a result of Hurricane Harvey, our students have a determination to succeed.

My Project

There are various students that make their way into the classroom. Some of the students may have ADD/ADHD, mental illness, or even learning disabilities.

Flexible seating appeals to all learners because they are able to sit and learn in an environment that caters to them and their learning needs.

Additionally, flexible seating provides a sense of community and choice among students. These two elements alone can lead to a drastic change in the learning, retention, and development of students. Students should be committed to their learning, and with the flexible seating options provided, their commitment will grow because they have a choice in their education.
