DonorsChoose, the most trusted crowdfunding platform for teachers, donors, and district administrators, awarded Hay Springs High School English teacher Heidi Beguin, almost $2000 in a flexible seating campaign she created in early August. “I wanted to try to find funds for flexible seating, in my classroom, without putting a financial strain on the school. I created a project a few years ago, through DonorsChoose, that was fully funded and my hope was that this one would be too.” After she publicized the project on her personal Facebook page, and received a couple local donations (big thank you to Lisa Merritt and Malinda Smith), one other anonymous donor came forward to fully fund the project. “My classroom will soon be outfitted with six tall tables, each with two stools, giving twelve students the option to stand or at least sit in something other than the desks they sit in during most every class. Our kids sit a lot of the day, so I’m excited to be able to offer some other options for them.” Before and after photos will be posted to our school’s Facebook soon.
