Write a summary of the article "Elementary school in California experiments with flexible seating" (link) using the following topic sentences:

Alexandria Gladstone-Lamas is a teacher at Anderson Elementary School.

Gone are usual desks and chairs. 

Students can choose where they'd like to start their day and then rotate after recess and lunch. 

Anderson Elementary School is in Newport Beach, California. 

Gladstone-Lamas got the idea from the Google company. 

"Flexible seating would offer them choices," Gladstone-Lamas said. 

In class, 9-year-old Emily Engel sat on a tube-shaped buoy. 

"This is better than sitting in a plastic chair. 

Some of her peers were spread out on a padded blanket.

"I don't miss sitting at a regular desk," Grayson said. 

Since the change, Gladstone-Lamas said she's noticed her students participating more.

Gladstone-Lamas said she was inspired to try new kinds of seating in her classroom after she tried using a yoga ball instead of a desk chair.

Principal Shannon Bray said Gladstone-Lamas is the first teacher to try out new seating at Anderson.

"It's a big undertaking for teachers to move desks and chairs," Bray said.
