The Modern Teacher Desk
A suitable desk for the modern teacher will account for the changes in audiovisual education, provide room for academic papers, and organize cables for lights and computers. There will be enough space to organize and declutter.

When a single pedestal will do, the Virco 54 can suffice for smaller spaces. This traditional desk comes laminated, so you wont have to worry about ink or coffee stains. Use the drawers for important papers or hanging file folders to stay organized. Virco offers a ten-year warranty, which is more than half of a students school career. Please take advantage of it, and use this desk when classroom space is scarce.
If youre like most teachers, you probably have a desk given to you by someone else or worse: one of those uncomfortable wooden chairs that came with the room when it was built. It doesnt have to be this way.
The Whitney Brothers desk can solve your problems. This desk is designed to meet the needs of early childhood teachers. This double pedestal teachers desk features a generous work surface of 26 D x 57.75 W with a grommet that neatly accommodates computer cables, phone lines, and power cords.
The Whitney Brothers Teachers Collection comes with a Lifetime Warranty and is made of Birch plywood, which is known for its strength and durability.
Why Teachers Always Need Desks
Teachers, like many other valuable mentors, are professionals. They need a place to sit and do their work when not walking around and displaying lectures on a whiteboard or projector. Grading papers is often laborious, especially when evaluating essays for writing quality. Teachers also want to store paper backups of addresses on hand in case the Internet or computers go down.
You also have to factor in practical needs. A person also cannot stand all day, no matter their job. The effort puts a strain on the human body.
Walking around a classroom or going from room to room tires ones legs out, and teachers need a place to sit comfortably. Due to the workload, lack of available school supplies, and an intense schedule, teachers can also eat at their desks when balancing the workday with essential nutrition.
A desk is also a status symbol. Unlike a BMW or a Hermes Birkin bag, however, desks tell us that teachers are people and deserve a place to sit. Other people need constant reminders of that fact.
While teachers may change classrooms, a desk is the one place where they can sit, work, and establish a presence. Students will respect them. So will administrators.
Desks are essential. In one case, a Bronx principal tried to throw out her teachers desks and filing cabinets. She told them, Figure it out! when they understandably asked how they would grade papers and store appropriate documents. After a few days of teachers standing and scurrying, the desks were restored. A year later, the principal resigned under pressure.
The lesson? Do not deprive a teacher of their desks. Respect the educators that pay out of pocket so their kids will get the books they need.
