Mrs. Forte was awarded the 2014 Logan Elm Education Foundation Grant for an idea that reflects an innovative approach to teaching. Her application showed research that included the impact ball chairs have on students' success in the classroom. When asked what they thought about using the ball chairs, one student immediately responded " It helps me focus". Another student stated that they are better than regular chairs because you don't have to sit still all the time and can move around at your desk. The rest of the class voiced their agreement.
