Purse on the floor
My CT Had her oversized purse open with two different bottles of prescription medicine visible to anyone who looked at the purse. She had it on the floor next to her where she was sitting next to all the kids on the rug. She then left the place she was sitting and went to the other side of the room. The purse was in arms reach o many students sitting on the floor right by it. I was worried but didn't say anything unless the students reached for it.

You might one to talk with her privately and suggest she keep her purse in a cabinet. I've had many teachers keep their purses in cabinets or at least behind their desks; definitely away from students. Somewhere where she can easily access it but here students can't. She might not even realize it's so easily attainable for other students.

I like this solution. I'm sure being a teacher has her mind focused on other things, so she may not even realize it, but she would most likely agree with the suggestion.

I would just talk to her after class. She would be happy that you did.

I completely agree that it would be helpful because she may not understand.

I would not talk to her in front of the students because that might upset her but I would definitely say something to her because that could be a health hazard for the students

I agree. You should talk about that privately, because it can put a child's health at risk.

I would definitely make a suggestion that she either leaves her purse in her car, or in a locked closet if that's an option. As a certified pharmacy technician, so many different medications can be harmful to children and its not safe for children to be able to easily access them.

This is definitely a hazard to students and an issue that should be addressed immediately. I doubt your CT even realized that this was an issue but if you kindly explain the problem to her and offer her someplace private to put her purse this issue could be immediately solved.
