Self Storage Tips for Teachers

Another school year is beginning and it’s time to get your classroom and teaching materials together.

One way to start your year off on the right note is to make sure all your supplies and materials are well-organized and easy to access.

Use these self storage tips throughout the school year so you can locate the things you need quickly and easily.

Store by Subject or Teaching Unit

As a teacher, you understand the importance of planning. When putting together your yearly curriculum, make a list of the items you need for each subject. Store classroom supplies and books you don’t need right away in storage containers and make sure they’re clearly labeled on the sides. Neatly stack the containers in your storage unit until you are ready to use them.

Stockpile Supplies

You never know when your students will run out of supplies. Instead of storing pencils, markers, binders, books and paper in your home or apartment where they clutter your living space, store them in your self storage unit. Your home and your classroom will remain clutter free.

Keep It Simple

Teaching can be stressful. Don’t add to your stress by storing your teaching materials in a basement or attic where they can get lost among your personal belongings. A self storage facility with the following features makes storing and retrieving your teaching supplies a breeze:

  • Ground-floor accessibility
  • Drive-up units
  • On-site management
  • Multiple unit sizes

 Make Security a Priority

Educational materials, classroom supplies, musical instruments and student projects are valuable. Give them the protection they deserve by choosing a self storage facility with these security features:

  • Perimeter fencing
  • Controlled access
  • 24-hour surveillance
  • Alarms

Look for Anytime Access

As a teacher, some days you may work late—long after your students have gone home. One of the big benefits of self storage is that you can access your items after school hours, on weekends and even during holidays. Look for a self storage facility that offers 24-hour controlled access so you can get into your unit any time.

With the right self storage facility, your school year will be a success!
