We didn't get to try it out the first week, as I had a ton of pencils sharpened for the first week of school. This week I wanted students to start taking care of those things themselves. This pencil sharpener is AMAZING! I was able to clamp it onto my back table, and it works great!
When the first few students tried it out, they exclaimed, "Wow! That's awesome!" No stress holding onto the pencil whatsoever! I would definitely recommend this sharpener to all first grade teachers. I'm hoping that it will last and hold up throughout the school year. Our janitor and elementary principal and anxious to hear how its working out.

There is a mount that you can purchase to mount this sharpener to the countertop as well. For now I'm going to keep testing out just clamping it onto the back table. This way I have the old fashioned X-acto one and this new one to use. No more waiting in line for the pencil sharpener!
