From holding parent-teacher conferences, creating lessons, and trying to make learning fun, teachers do a lot for their students throughout the year. While students are able to enjoy their time off school, teachers have to work summer jobs, tutor students, or create lesson plans for the fall. The last thing teachers should worry about is where to store all of their classroom decorations, furniture, textbooks, and other supplies. With more school districts temporarily utilizing distance learning, self-storage is a necessity for teachers during this transition. A storage unit is an ideal storage solution for teachers until class is returned to campus.

Classroom Organization

Since classrooms are already filled with textbooks, pencils, project supplies, and decorations, having a self-storage unit will help eliminate clutter. Instead of storing all your supplies in the classroom, use a self-storage unit to store the items that aren’t frequently used. This will free up extra space in your classroom to make room for current projects and students’ supplies. Help your students stay focused by keeping a clean and organized learning space.

Year-Round Access

A storage unit is an ideal solution to keeping an organized classroom throughout the school year. Instead of only using storage during summer months, consider having a unit year-round to keep your home and classroom free from clutter. Keeping your items in a storage unit year-round will allow you to only keep the necessities in your classroom. Store your most frequently used items in the front of the storage unit, while keeping seasonal items, like holiday decorations, in the back.  If you’ll be teaching through distance learning this year, free your home from glitter, construction paper, and other art supplies with a storage unit.

Seasonal Items

Are you the kind of teacher that decorates the classroom for every season or holiday? A storage unit is perfect to store your seasonal items and decorations that aren’t used throughout the entire school year. Instead of storing your decorations at home, keep them in a storage unit to reuse for upcoming years without taking up extra space.

Storage Features

With Lighthouse Self Storage, you don’t have to worry about your belongings. Our storage facilities feature the finest in storage security and monitoring features to help give you peace of mind. To ensure your belongings remain in their original condition, consider climate-controlled storage. If you’re storing temperature sensitive items, like documents or electronics, it’s best to have climate-control to prevent damage.  If exposed to heat, papers can turn yellow and electronics can ruin. Consider climate-controlled storage if you plan on using a storage unit year-round to maintain the condition of your supplies.

Unit Sizes

Lighthouse Self Storage offers a variety of storage unit sizes to fit your needs. If you’re only storing basic supplies, like, textbooks, containers, and decorations, a smaller unit will suffice. Consider a medium sized-unit if you plan on storing larger items, such as, furniture, filing cabinets, and organizers.  If you teach different grade levels, a larger unit size will be the most valuable. If you’re teaching sixth grade and first grade, your supplies will differ throughout the grade levels. When you’re not teaching a grade level, keep the supplies in a self-storage unit to use for the next time you teach that grade.
