Teachers desks need to be tough to withstand the rigors of a busy classroom. It is important to pay attention to materials to ensure that your purchase will endure through many years of students. Choose from wooden and steel options to find the style and strength that fulfills your needs. Wooden desks have a natural appeal and sturdiness, while steel offers a lighter-weight budget-friendly option.
Whichever material you choose, you want to make sure that you have the storage an educator needs to keep all necessary supplies on hand. The pedestal, a series of drawers, serves to organize all the school paperwork and supplies you have to handle. Teacher desks come with either one or two pedestals. A single pedestal provides more open leg room underneath while two pedestals offer more storage.
Pedestals generally come with a combination of box and file drawers. Box drawers supply an open space which can hold office supplies and small electronics. File drawers provide an easy way to organize important student documents, assignments, official paperwork and any other papers that need to be organized. Many of our teacher desks also include a convenient pencil drawer right under the work surface.
With students and teachers coming in and out of the classroom throughout the day, you want to make sure that your supplies and files are protected in the teachers desk. Locking pedestals keep what you need on hand while protecting against theft and prying eyes. Knowing that possessions are secure provides peace of mind and reassurance, even when the teacher is absent from the room.
A great feature to look for is a conference overhang. This creates a comfortable space for students to sit and take notes in personal meetings or review sessions with teachers. Many of our teacher's desks from Sandusky Lee offer this convenient feature.
Add some flair to any learning space with an Educational Edge teachers desk from Academia. Educational Edge features brightly-colored accents that are sure to liven up your classroom, making it more inviting and appealing. You can coordinate with student desks, bookshelves, activity tables and just about any other classroom furniture you can think of for a matching study space.
Empowered II teachers desks offer the ultimate in visual appeal and convenience. They are designed for the digital age with a built-in power and data strip and wire-management grommets. They easily roll through standard doorways on eight heavy-duty casters. Rather than the classic pedestal configuration, Empower II desks have one pedestal with classic drawers and another with plastic bins which are great for storing classroom supplies.
