Allie Corstorphine, grade 6 teacher at Yorkson Creek Middle school, explains her transition to using flexible seating.
Allie has completed a Masters degree in the area of self-regulation with a focus on the needs of the child. Part of this area of study examined the reasons behind flexible seating to develop a deep understanding and confidence to communicate and reassure parents.
Allie has generously shared her expertise so she can help colleagues successfully transition to flexible seating within their own classrooms.
