Math teacher employs standing desks in classroom

Will Jarvis, Staff Writer

On Tuesday, Sept. 18, math teacher Mrs. Rosalie Goldberg received three standing desks for use in her classes. These desks, purchased by the school, have been shown to aid in the students’ learning.

Although Mrs. Goldberg has been aware of these learning tools for quite some time, it wasn’t until recently that she decided to incorporate them into her classroom. “I read an article in the paper four years ago, and it said it helped the students learn, so that’s where the idea came from” Mrs. Goldberg said.

With standing students, some would think these desks would create distractions, but this is not the case. “The kids that have used [the standing desks] have really liked them,” Mrs. Goldberg said.
