Mrs. Vasallo from Colorado Springs CO is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Yay! A Hard Plastic Chair- Said No One, Ever

My students need a wobble chair, and exercise balls to use as chairs. This will provide comfortable seating arrangements and encourage students to focus while working to achieve greatness in class!

My Students

My classroom encompases students from so many diverse backgrounds, many of which have a life more difficult than most of us can even imagine.

No matter what they are faced with at home, or at school, my students defy the odds every single day!

They give their all every single day!

My students inspire me to be the best teacher I can possibly be, to help them Achieve, and it is my job to provide them with the tools they need to be successful.

My Project

Research shows that flexible seating options in the classroom can drastically affect student performance.

Having exercise balls, or a wobble chair, can provide students with the opportunity to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, this increases the flow of oxygen to the brain.

A few students in my classroom have doctor diagnosed ADHD and would greatly benefit from having access to these flexible seating options that will allow them to be successful in the classroom.

Additionally, students need to feel comfortable in order to be successful, if this project is funded I will be able to provide my students with the tools they need to feel comfortable, and be productive in class.
