By this point, we know that 2020 has been a year like none other. The shocks, surprises, and jaw-dropping news items just never seem to stop. Among other things, 2020 has seen an understandable rise in the use of portable handwashing sinks. If you’ve been on the fence about whether or not to invest in one, we’re here to help you weigh your options.
Portable handwashing sinks don’t just seem to be a fad. They’re likely here to stay, and we can see why.
COVID-19 is changing the face of education. Whereas in the past, you could arrange collaborative student desks for larger groups, it is now essential to find those models that support retrofitting with sneeze guards. That said, there are several models that shine.
Ever since the first cases of the COVID-19 pandemic reached the country’s shores some time at the beginning of 2020, the state of American education can be most accurately described as disrupted. As the first schools began closing in mid-February – albeit for a few days at a time for cleaning purposes and in fairly specific areas with high caseloads – the CDC warned that all schools should at least consider making a COVID plan. Two days later, the first school shut down.
As is often the case with educators in America, teachers, administrators, and school districts rose to the occasion. What does that look like for teachers across the country? We’ve spoken with two educators to learn more about both the initial challenges they faced from the beginning of the pandemic, as well as to gain a little insight into a day in the life of the American teacher amidst COVID-19. Anne-Marie Emanuelli is Creative Director at Mindful Frontiers in El Prado, New Mexico, as well as District Testing Coordinator for her local high school district. Wendy I. is a teacher at LA Tutors 123, a test preparation, academic consultation, and private tutoring company based in Los Angeles.
Collaboration and technology have become important components of the modern classroom. Teachers and administrators have had to learn to adapt to a rapidly changing world and adopt new techniques to keep their classrooms modern and effective.
Collaborative classroom furniture can help bring your school into the 21st century and provide students with an atmosphere that promotes learning and collaboration.
