    Hello. I have recently been informed that after 3 years I finally have my very own classroom. (yay!) However, I went to my classroom just yesterday to discover it has no podium/lecturn which I have become accustomed to using especially because my teacher's edition textbook weighs like 10 lbs. I have been looking around on the net and they seem to be so expensive.

    Does anyone have any good alternatives to a podium or know where I can get one at a reasonable price? :thanks:

    If your school has an instrumental program, maybe the director would be willing to lend you a good music stand?

    I agree. This is what I use. the kids also get a kick standing behind it when they do presentations.

    My husband built one for me this summer in one weekend. It is awesome, solid oak, two shelves and on wheels. I would also check with your vocational dept and see if any of the students would like to build one for you.

    You might also check with your local churches; ours often have an older podium - mine has bookshelves in it! - that they'll give you for free or sell you for a small price.
