Do you have a desk?
Thursdays are all about questions and this is mine to you today.
Throughout my teaching career the subject of teacher desks has always been a controversy. Some people are in the camp that they should not be in the classroom at all and others are ok with it.
I have wavered back and forth through the years.
Do you have a desk you work at in your home space?
I do not typically sit at the desk at school and work with students. Usually it is at a table or within the student’s space.
In my classroom now, I have no desk and I will admit…it is driving me crazy.
I have come to learn that I like having the deep drawer to my left that has the files for each of my students. I can take assessments or writing or notes and plop them right in there. Safely organized for when I need the information.
The surface is honestly the grounding place for all important papers [which the amount of always seems to grow even still in the era of teaching under COVID].
I have requested a desk so I hope it comes soon…I need drawers to fill.
How do you feel about desks? Do you have one at home?
Which camp are you in? Pro or Con Desk? I would love to know in the comments.
