I am a rpart-time reading specialist. My classroom is also used by the after school program. I put away all my supplies at the end of the day. Nothing is out because the afterschool program has their own supplies...or they're supposed to. This year at the beginning of the year, I was finding my dry-erase markers all over the room. I had them marked so I know they were mine. I asked some students if someone had been going into my cabinets and they told me that the teacher used stuff from the cabinet and pointed to the one where my stuff is stored. That teacher left and a new one took over. I've tried to be solicitous, offering her space for storage and agreeing to let her put up student projects for decoration. For some time, I've been finding my student pencils in desks and broken on the floor. I know they're mine because they were personalized and about to be thrown out when I rescued them. This past month, I've been out on a personal situation. I came back to find the entire drawer where my student pencils had been is now empty. I didn't have a sub while I was out, so there is really only one place to think my pencils have gone. In addition to that, I bought an electric sharpener. I had it in the packaging, in a closest. I didn't want to leave it out for student use, so I kept it closed away. It was the same brand the afterschool program had, and they had one out for student use. Now there are two sharpeners out. I was looking for my sharpener today and it's not in the closet.. I was pretty ill before Christmas, so I had the thought that maybe I'd brought it home and just forgotten about it. Nope. I looked at home and it's not here. I really don't want to make accusations, but things like dry erase markers and the sharpener came out of MY pocket money. It's getting to the point where I feel like I need to schlep whatever I'm using from home every day in order for it not to disappear.
