Hi... LOL. I just transferred schools after nine years at the same school, and my new school is a phenomenal place. I am super-stoked about being there and being one of two new teachers to the Gifted program. I will have a portable that houses two classrooms side-by-side, with a decent personal bathroom. It's not the smallest of portables, but it'll be very different from the land where I was able to do all these wondrous things (LOL): http://love4thgrade.blogspot.com/search/label/ClassroomTour As you may notice, I had a large closet, a middle office, and cubbies as well as storage over the sink. I like the idea of having a portable, though. It'll be a challenge-- but I am strangely excited about using my "plastic kingdom" for storage. I will be stacking two sets of drawers on top of one another. I will do it nicely, with a piece of wood separating the stack-- and they will be adhered well. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-4w2f_fXR3ZQ/TkxlbpzFA2I/AAAAAAAAAP4/_TYyVadV7sA/s1600/IMG_0285.JPG See the turquoise drawers? That's what I am talking about... And see the rolling cart towards the right? I will definitely use that to my advantage. I want to use these for the kids from two years ago because my kids will be at trapezoid tables. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VMUbCdM61aI/Tkxk1zWRziI/AAAAAAAAAPg/ROhW4vq1uEs/s1600/IMG_0279.JPG These don't have the days of the week on them anymore, but... I can use these to house center items. Fortunately, the tubs can be transported around the room. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-tucGp6Y6OdU/TkxkjFPm_KI/AAAAAAAAAPU/PhH90HzdK7w/s1600/IMG_0273.JPG So-- any advice for being in a portable? Yes, I have to downsize a bit... I know that, but that's probably a REALLY good thing because I am somewhat of a pack rat. I have to prioritize. I will be storing some things in our shed at home, particularly board games because I don't need 7,684 in the portable. I plan on bringing a few of my very favorites, including my new checkbook/credit card game and Science Diction, of course. :lol: (Otherwise, I wouldn't survive... he, he, he.) But do you have any other practical advice?
