I am a music teacher and I love my shining stars. Our students are socio-economically disadvantaged. Our school serves students in grades PK-5th grade and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers and a safe learning environment.
Hurricane Harvey displaced a vast majority of our students and some are still displaced and homeless, and some live in crowded rooms.
Our school is a refuge to a lot of students, the only place that they are guaranteed two meals a day. We have a wonderful staff who provides above and beyond for our students. We have our local food bank and other local services donate to our campus, and what a blessing it is.
My music classroom is a busy place. I teach all the students in the school K-5. It is also one that requires a lot of materials for a lot of learners. With all these materials, it gets difficult to find homes for everything. My bigger concern is finding homes for the materials my students use daily that are accessible to them and myself. I really want to be organized and I think rolling storage carts are the answer.
My students and myself need to be able to access the materials we need each day easily.
I don't have lots of places I can put things that are within my reach or the students reach. I would love to have these mobile storage cart to store most of the students' materials by grade level in an easily accessible place that both they and I can get and return needed material quickly. This storage cart will allow for smoother transitions during our daily lessons as well as small group instruction time. In addition, it will help to eliminate clutter in the classroom and will allow us more time for music and fun.
