News and tips about school furniture, office furniture, daycare furniture and more from Worthington Direct.
School furniture for classrooms allow students and teacher’s to highly function in an educational space. Many school rooms use furniture such as student chairs, desks, tables and writing boards to provide a stable learning environment from elementary, high school through college and university age students.
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.
We haven’t seen every budget for 2020, but we would hazard a guess that when this year first dawned, most businesses did not have “purchasing portable handwashing sinks” listed as a specific line item.
Due to complications surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19, however, that may very well have changed. We need clean hands now more than ever.
It is never too early to begin thinking about your classroom needs for next year! Every great classroom is created with an eye for student collaboration and movement. Teachers who make effective environments for students to work will avoid unnecessary distraction and facilitate authentic learning on a daily basis.
