S4 Episode 13: Innovative Classroom Flexible Seating
Do you have trouble sitting still for a two-hour training? Imagine how your students feel during the school day! Flexible seating doesn’t have to be complex, but it surely can impact classroom climate.

Listen as Danielle and Mary hear how swapping out desks for tire chairs and exercise balls has turned Everett’s classroom upside for the better!
