I am an Emotional Disabilities Teacher for Fairfax County Public Schools.  My school is a special education center for students with emotional disabilities, as well as learning disabilities (such as ADHD, ADD, and Autism). I am starting this fundraiser in order to provide my History Department with the funds to purchase "flexible furniture." As a small public special education center, we do not receive much funding that would allow us to purchase the materials we need.

A flexible furniture classroom replaces traditional seating with a variety of options for students to choose from. Flexible furniture would include items like sit/stand desks, bean bag chairs, lap desks, rocking chairs, etc.  Studies show that flexible furniture classrooms provide an overall better learning environment and helps prevent health disorders such as cardiovascular problems, poor posture, and back and neck pain. Flexible furniture also benefits for students by surviving choice/control, comfort, community, collaboration, communication, and sensory input.

One hundred percent of the money raised would be used to purchase furniture for the history classrooms that are for the exclusive use of the students.
