Mrs. Tartsa from Manchester NH is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a chance to safely evacuate our classroom should an emergency arise.
Our school is an inner-city school with a diverse population. We have over 850 children walking through our hallways, speaking a variety of languages and coming from different socioeconomic backgrounds. Each day these students enter a safe learning environment and are greeted with smiles from dedicated, caring staff members.
I love to teach, and I want my students to love learning.
Language arts encompasses reading, writing and speaking, and I try to engage students by using the arts to enhance their learning. This is a challenge with a district that is underfunded. I appreciate the opportunity to help me help my students.
Our classroom is on the top floor and it's a long way down! Therefore, having a permanent evacuation ladder in my classroom will give my students the opportunity to exit our room in a safe manner should an emergency arise and we cannot leave through the door.
ALERRT training and fire evacuation drills both demonstrate that students may need to find another means of leaving a classroom to find protection.
This all metal, thirty-five foot ladder has many safety features built into it that would allow an entire student body to evacuate the classroom within minutes. This ladder is also reusable. With this being said, I truly hope that we will never have to use it, but it is reassuring to know that it would be there if we ever need it.
