This is a collection of beautiful paperweights for teacher desks. Paperweights are great for keeping piles of papers to be filed neatly stacked, and also work in the same way for piles of homework, assignments, and forms, that students submit on a daily basis. Paperweights for teachers can match the theme of the classroom, have an inspiring message on it about teaching, or have a design element that represents teaching or the teacher’s hobbies. It goes without saying that paper weights should be both functional and beautiful.
I may be very particular, but I prefer a paperweight that has a strip of soft foam or rubber padding at the base. This gives it grip when it is on the desk so that it does not wobble or roll around from table movements. It also gives it a soft landing so that when you place it on the desk, it does not make a loud noise to distract students.
