Hi - I am also teaching from carts (2) this year while an addition to our
school is being built. I am lucky to have a storeroom/office, though. It was
recently built in a corner of our cafeteria and will be a storage closet next
year. Before this, my cart was being raided by teachers, Home and School,
Brownies, etc.! It is great to finally be able to have a place for organizing
things until they go on the cart.
I use my laptop at home to access school email. Most of my books and files
are in my home office also - just waiting for next year!
Try covering your cart with something when you are away from it - a large
plastic bag, a quilt, a sheet - anything that signals that it is off limits. How
about asking your principal to make a blanket statement about this to other
teachers? Hang in there, Sandy J
