Mrs. Malsbury from Rochester Hills MI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Who Doesn't Want to Sit and Work on Their Core!

My students need ball chairs to sit on while working on desktop computers for long periods of time. These chairs will help students focus more on the task and help the ergonomics of the room.

My Students

RHS students are driven, diverse, and dynamic. I serve 9 thru 12th grade. The Falcons are scholars, athletes, artists, performers, and entrepreneurs. Our pillars are Character, Tradition, and Achievement.

I am creating a collaborative office environment for my students.

A room that is obviously different to the classrooms that our students perform in hour after hour, each and every day. By emulating an office environment, our students are able to engage in a professional, effective, efficient, self-directed working environment.

My Project

I am interested in providing a flexible seating environment in my simulated business classroom. Students would benefit from this type of seating so they have better cognitive performance, a higher ability to concentrate and be more focused. To dovetail on that, it will help them develop a stronger core!

Posted on January 19, 2017 in Industry News, the immediate benefits of incorporating flexible seating into classrooms can include:

Better health, reduced risk of disease, less stress, strengthened mental health, improved physical fitness, effective learning, better cognitive performance, higher ability to concentrate, improved memory retention, and higher academic achievement.

Ultimately, I would like six chairs to be purchased with the desktops at the side of our office, but I'll settle for three to get us started. We appreciate the support.
