    So I've probably spent a total of 10 hours combined searching my house and car for a lost voice amplifier. My school likes the teachers to wear those microphones hooked up to the speaker system. I accidentally took mine home, set it on the shelf to take back to school, and haven't seen it since. I like to think I have reached the hourly time-work rate of my search to figure I should ask for a new one and take the bite out of my paycheck.

    Any tips for a new teacher at a school approaching authority to say I lost something?

    Tell them the dog ate it? Kidding. I would just be honest, hey things happen!

    Just tell them what happened. I’m sure it’s not the first time.
