    The crazy thing is, if a student is in true need- I am more than happy to help them out, buy them a school breakfast or what not.

    I guess it's all perspective. I'm over here surprised some of you haven't had something stolen yet.

    This is reminding me to get a replacement key for my desk. I had one student who stole a bunch of gift cards ($5 for Subway or McDonalds) that I keep as rewards or, in some cases, I realize a student has food security issues at home. I don't have proof it was that certain student, but he grinned at me a week later and said, "I had a great lunch at Mickey D's last week." He was arrested for unrelated charges soon after that, and I haven't had any problems since he left.

    We are a Title 1 school so MANY of our students would have food insecurities, which is why if they had just asked, I would have been more than happy to provide a few dollars here or there for a snack.
