Classroom Desks: Not Just For Students

By: Melissa Aldridge

Back in 2001, according to Education Statistics Quarterly, a study asked public school teachers which types of classroom technology did teachers consider to be essential? A teacher's desk with a computer that has access to email topped the list with 68% of respondents considering it to be essential, followed by a computer with internet capabilities (61% of educators believed that was essential).

When we think of desks and computers in a classroom, we tend to picture desks for students or computer tables in computer labs, but in order for our teachers to be effective, they need to the tools that help maximize their ability to educate and a teacher's computer desk is an important component.

A Los Angeles-based company, Versatables, designs and manufactures computer desks for teachers. As a quickly growing furniture retailer, Versa offers an entire line of classroom desks for adults, perfect for teachers and complete customizable with accessories. Each desk is American-made and comes with several color choices and combinations.

A popular desk for teachers is Versa's Versatable. The Versatable is available in multiple sizes and includes a top shelf that spans the size of the table. It can be easily customized with CPU holders, monitor arms, printer platforms, speaker shelves, and a cable management system. It allows for upgradeable keyboard arms and provides adequate writing space in addition to supporting a computer monitor.

Another choice well-suited for classroom teachers is Versa's Adjustable Classroom Table. The modesty panel provides the user with space under the desk to keep personal items. The desktop is wide and can be fully maximized. This particular product is available in five different sizes and each one adjusts easily for height. Ergonomic keyboard accessories can be easily added to this product, making it customizable.

Versa Products offers quantity discounts on all of its products, giving educational institutions a much-appreciated price break. In addition, all of Versa's products, regardless of quantity, ship for free in the contiguous U.S.-another cost savings over competitive companies. All products also come with a lifetime warranty. Color combinations include black/woodgrain, black/black, black/gray matrix, gray/woodgrain, gray/black matrix, gray/gray matrix. Other popular accessories include cable management systems, LCD monitor arms, locking CPU holders, locking laptop drawers, printer platforms, and the basic task chair with arms.

Versatables also accepts purchase orders for approved schools and companies, and customer service representatives are helpful and friendly. Most items are kept in stock. With that being said, large orders may take additional time to process and may not leave the warehouse within three days.

Most of Versa's tables and computer desks are also customizable and the company also produces a line of audio video workstations, computer racks, mobile computer carts, student-centered classroom tables, multiuser computer lab tables, and can create custom products based on your individual needs.

Versa also offers matching teacher's desks for most of the student desks in its classroom computer product line, allowing for an aesthetically pleasing classroom appearance. For more information on Versatables or to request a catalog, visit Versa's website.
