Preparing for Small Classroom Groups with Half Moon Tables

Education has come a long way. Despite the fact that we still imagine a classroom fully of forward-facing desks and teachers that never smile, the reality of the modern classroom is entirely different than the one we see in those old TV movies. More often than not, teachers interact with students on a regular basis […]

Cafeterias & Classrooms During Summer School

For most students, May and June marks the end of one grade and the beginning of the next. Two months off and no more homework from their teachers. In reality, school never closes. Many teachers, staff, and administrators end up coming back during those few weeks to teach summer school, attend trainings, and prepare for […]

No More Trouble Finding the Right Classroom Furniture

One of the biggest complaints from classroom furniture buyers, and understandably so, is that no single store has everything they need. A piece here and a piece there, but no comprehensive way to buy each and every piece with one purchase. Consumers are picky and they should be. Colors, styles, and designs are crucial to […]

Virco Technology Tables Hide Obnoxious Wires

Some day in the future, our wide ranging technologies will not need to charge every few hours. We’ll have a laptop or a phone that can hold a charge for weeks or even months. Or so we’d like to believe. For now, however, our laptops, our Kindles, and our phones will all have to get […]

Extreme Makeover: Classroom Edition

The great summertime challenge for every teacher is knowing how to balance rest and relaxation with a desire to prepare for the next school year. Classroom Furniture expects that the average teacher will be and should be enjoying their break from students for the next few weeks, but that won’t stop us from selling the […]

Falling into the Woodwork with Quality Science Furniture

Students expect their science teachers to praise quality work and rightly so. A great science fair project, an effective demonstration, or a moment of success in the midst of a science experiment are all worthy of recognition by good teachers who know the value of positive affirmation. But what can be said of the supporting […]

Think Balance when you Think Geometric Zuma Desks by Virco

Around this time of year, the main subject for elementary school math teachers is geometry. Students have, by this point, covered their areas of calculation (multiplication, division, addition, subtraction) and are ready to see where those hard-earned math skills are most useful. Geometry at their age means understanding shapes, angles, area, and three dimensional objects. […]

Prepare the Audience with Convertible Benches from Virco

Over the last several months, almost every elementary school in the United States has had to arrange and rearrange their cafeteria for multiple events that range from science fairs and honor roll awards to the standard arrangement of daily meals. The trouble for many schools is that each time the cafeteria gets used for a […]

Setting Up the 21st Century Library with Virco

Over the last ten years, elementary, middle, and high school libraries have gone through a significant restructuring. The name “library” seemed unappealing to younger generations and so much of what school librarians were dealing with had to do with multiple forms of media, rather than books alone. It wasn’t long before schools adopted the title […]

Preparing for a School Interview at the Virco Conference Table

New teachers have become more and more familiar with the interview experience, especially when searching for their first job with a school. Some interviews are low-key and simple (just the principal and one other administrator). Others are more complex and quite intimidating for the uninitiated. In South Florida, one school is known for having the […]
