A Place to Hang My Coat and Bag

My students need a place to put their coats and book bags when they come in from buses every morning.

My Students

My students attend a public separate school that is meant to provide education and care to children with severe and profound global disabilities. My students are non-verbal and in many cases confined to a wheelchair and dependent upon someone else to meet their daily living needs. This does not mean, however, that my students are unable to communicate and learn. They are very special and learn from their own personal unique and special way. As their teacher, I must find the way.

My Project

When my students come to school they do not have a place to put their book bags or hang their coats, or place other items parents may send in. Many teachers are creative with places to put extra clothes and other items, and end up stuffing coats into the student's book bags and just keep the bags on the back of the student's wheelchair.

This causes a problem for students during group or partner learning.

Book bags can be a huge distraction as classmates like to tug and pull on the bag. Some students want to open their friend's bag and peek inside, pull out everything they can, and play with anything that looks like fun.

My goal is that the ECR4Kids coat locker would provide my students not only a place to hang their coats but a place to put their book bags to get them off the back of the wheelchairs as well as an additional cubby for extra clothes and/or items. This would remove the distraction from the back of the student's wheelchairs and allow my students to focus on instruction and activities with staff and classmates. All students deserve their own personal place to put their personal items. Please help my students get their own personal coat locker.
