Hey, I did this about 10 years ago in Las Vegas, NV! Is that where you are teaching? It's all about double classes and sticking people on a cart in weird places. I have a bunch of tips on working on a cart and frankly, it's kinda nice because you tend to go unnoticed. I used the gladware containers for everything from water to paint to supplies because their lids seal. So, you can have all the supplies ready to go for each table before you arrive in the cafeteria (or stage, which I also had the pleasure of teaching on- complete with steps and no ramp, during lunchtime, with only a curtain separating the noise...). You can do any project, really, as long as you have the supplies divided up before you get there. Because you'll be so pressed for time, and you'll be teaching 36+ kids, organization is key. Clean up at
least 10 minutes before hand and have the kids do it at their tables first. Anybody getting out of their seats will only create some mass chaos. As for hands, baby wipes are amazing. It sucks to pay out of pocket for them sometimes but when you're on a cart, they're a life saver. After a few months, the kids will get used to your routine and rules and they'll be able to help you with clean up a little easier. Remember to be firm at first because you can always lighten up later. Good luck!
