Meacham’s Store

Organized Teaching

My classroom has been referred to as “Meacham’s Store” — and for good reason!

I like to be prepared, and my preparedness helps others in need.  I’m most notorious for being able to provide a disposable contact lens to a teacher who lost one of her contact lenses. It fit, and was a pretty close match to her prescription!  Here are a few items that I keep on hand – which have proven to be helpful to not only my students and me, but also others in my school:
