How Do You Use Your Teacher Desk?

All art teachers seem to use their desks differently. While some teachers restrict their desks to strict “no student zones,” other teachers regularly invite students to talk about their work there. And while some teachers spend the majority of their days at their desks, others barely sit down.

In this video, you’ll see that I try to have a good mix of time spent at my desk and time spent away from it. It’s always a balancing act.

If you’re lucky enough to have a teacher desk in your classroom, we’d love to know what you think about desk etiquette. How should a desk be used?
