What are your opinions on going deskless in the classroom?

I think it is a great idea. I went from tables last year to single seat desks this year. It made collaboration and project work difficult because the work space is so small. Also, many of them began to outgrow the desks!
Next year I am getting my tables back and am looking for a configuration that will support more floor time. I have large class sizes so I am not sure how it will work but I am going to try! The kids love to stretch out on the floor and under tables while they work!

I wish that I could go deskless! I put the desks together as if they were tables of 4. Works great for collaboration:)

I went in-house 3 years ago. At the time, I was interviewing with 2 companies. One company was a much better cultural fit for me and I was 1 of 2 finalists. But they chose the other applicant. I got the other job and have been there ever since. The work is ok,but I still struggle with company culture daily. 3 years later, the original job that I wanted has been reposted. Reach out to the GC directly to show interest? Is it worth moving from a comfy job just bc I think the culture will be better?
