    I had a really strange thing happen on Friday and this is the first time this has ever happened to me and I have been subbing for almost seven years. I was in an art class and the teacher left me two videos to show two of her classes. Everything was running smoothly until I got to the last period (class) of the day. The teacher had told me that this class was going to be late because they would be returning from a field trip. So I decided to use the opportunity to use the restroom. I was only gone for about five minutes if even that long. When I came back into the room and went to get the video off of the teacher's desk both videos were missing. I have no idea where they went or who took them. I just think it is strange that someone would come in and take the videos without even bothering to leave a note or at least wait around to ask if they could take them. Lucky for me the teacher of the last class I was supposed to have came and told me that she was going to keep the kids since there was only about 25 minutes left. It is just driving me crazy that they are missing. I really hope that it was just the media specialist that came and got them. I don't really think that I student would take them seeing as how they are art teaching videos. I am thinking about sending the teacher an e-mail to see if they turned up.

    That is really weird.

    Did you lock the door behind you when you left the room?

    That is strange. Did you leave a note for the art teacher?

    Yes, I did indicate in my note to the teacher exactly what happened. No, I did not lock the door since I did not have a key. I had been out of the room twice before I noticed the videos were missing. They were there at luch time and gone about a hour and a half later.

    Did you check with the librarian to see if she had come to get them? This is strange. I wouldn't think a student would take them, unless they just moved them to a different location in the room.
