Ms. Stanford from Waco TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggle While We Work

My students need to be able to wiggle without distracting others, so we need some furniture that allows for quiet movement.

My Students

My students live in a high poverty area. Despite this, they are smart and loving. I see them work hard each day, and I want them to be successful learners and thinkers, almost as much as they do themselves!

They deserve to learn in ways that are beneficial to them and their growth.

Please help me to help them learn and grow. I promise you won't regret it! My students surely will not forget how you took a moment to let them know that they are important too. Your donation, no matter how great or small, will reach multiple children for years to come.

My Project

With your help, my students will be able to quietly move while they work. You are helping them to be able to focus more, and distract less. I am asking for fitness ball chairs and some inflatable chairs.

Research shows that we learn best when we are able to move, so my students will appreciate being able to get the wiggles out while they work!

We work really hard as it is, and I want them to be able to have comfortable seating at the same time. Your help will go a long way in helping my students become active learners. YOU ARE APPRECIATED!
