Ms. Claudia Beanes from El Paso TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle Our Way to Success

Help me give my students Wobble seats and foot bands for chairs to help my little ones combat the wiggles and help them focus during instruction. Please end the nightmare of sitting on jackets!

My Students

I am a bilingual inclusion 4th-grade teacher with the most amazing students. Our school is made up of students who are like family.

I believe it is imperative to help mold the moral character of our children as it is to formally educate them.

My goal every day is that they feel loved by everything I pour into them.

We have a diverse family of students who have so many hopes and dreams and I want to serve them with the best I have to offer.

My Project

My students will love to use the Wobble seats in their chair and take them to the carpet for read alouds. I will be using the foot bands to go on the desks to hold up legs and help with anxious feet. Some of our kids are tall and sometimes their legs will extend farther than others. We have a group of students with special needs that have a hard time sitting because of cold, hard chairs. They are active and love to move about but still maintain their own space.
