Low Maintenance and Safety = Alpha Fold and Roll Riser

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Dec 5, 2018 3:00:00 PM

It’s our lightweight stage riser that is cost effective. No tools, transport dollies, or extra hands are needed. Just roll it to the event location and unfold it. While the Fold and Roll Riser is in the transport position, the low profile provides better visibility over the top and its low center of gravity helps prevent tripping. Nylon bushings at pivot points keep the decks aligned, level, and safe throughout the life of the riser. The cantilever folding mechanism aids in lifting, so very little weight is actually lifted, minimizing the risk of back strain.

There's books on it - tons of books, actually. Barnes and Noble has it's own section on Leadership. Why are we so concerned with the right path to obtain leadership positions? Or why are we trying to find the so called "secret methods" to leading successfully? Problem is that a lot of those answers are subjective to who you are leading. If you don't understand your people, you won't lead well.

4 Halloween Music Activities for the Classroom

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Oct 24, 2018 3:00:00 PM

I remember my music classes in elementary school. We would walk to another part of the school where it was decorated with the most fun and interesting creative projects. It was one of my favorite parts of the day because we got to walk around the whole school to get to music class. Meaning we could find our friends in other classes by peeking our heads in classes along the way.
