This chair is perfect for a versatile learning environment. It allows for variable class arrangements quickly. The chair can be entered and exited easily with a movable desk top. The movement of the desk and adjustable height make this chair comfortable for a wide range of body types. Its sturdy construction allow for placing heavy objects on the desk without tipping. I love it; other teachers want it and my students will do anything to sit in it.

"The Essay chair actually took up less space than my box-like desks. I think having more of these chairs would save me room in the classroom. I also loved how quickly it allowed students in the chair to join a group. If I had a class full of these, we could be able to get in groups quicker.”
"The Essay Seating Collection had a positive impact in my classroom. It was sturdy, comfortable and portable. It was also a strong motivator in my class. Students enjoyed sitting in it to tackle challenging assignments and getting to use it as a reward. My school is already considering purchasing more of these."
