Necessity or Obstacle
For some, your teacher’s desk is a must. Not only is it functional, but it’s also a symbol of your leadership and authority in the classroom.
To others, the teacher’s desk is an obstacle; A barrier between you and your students. A large desk also takes up a big chunk of real estate in your classroom.
In Episode 66 of the Class Dismissed podcast, we caught up with Matthew Morris. Back in 2015, Morris wrote an article about why he got rid of his desk in his classroom. Readers from all over the world applauded his post, which is on his website and Medium.com.
We asked Morris if he had any regrets about ditching his desk three years ago. Where does he keep his stuff? Where does he grade papers? And most importantly, what did it mean for his relationship with his students.
