Thanks!
Hi Miss W!
I, too, am a teacher (of middle school). Make sure you rinse everything with hot water, but NOT SOAP! Soap is toxic for fish.
I know at my school they turn the heat off at night and on the weekends. I am not sure if they do this at your school or not, but if they do I would not advise keeping a betta there. You would need to have a heater plugged in at all times. If you can't keep a heater plugged in, and the heat does go off at certain parts of the week, please consider not having a betta in your room. Daily transportation of the betta would stress him out as well.
