I just got an email from my former principal regarding classroom library books. When I moved to my new school, I took all of my classroom library books, except for a few (maybe 30 out of the hundreds that I have). I have been buying books from Scholastic book clubs since I was a freshmen in college. When I started at my former school, there were only maybe 20 books in the classroom, so I was very glad that I started my collection so early! So, I just got an email from my former P saying, "It looks like you took all of your books. Is that true? If so, then you need to return any books that you did not pay for." (!!!!!!!!!!!) Does he really think I would steal books?!! The sad thing is, I don't have any proof of the books that I purchased. I ordered them from book clubs in college and in the past 3 years, and you don't really get a receipt. I also purchased many from rummage sales and thrift stores, so I don't have receipts for those. The thing that really upsets me is that I apparently was supposed to keep any books that I got as the result of book fair money. (When the book fair is over, each teacher gets to pick out a certain amount of books, based on book fair sales.) I can understand this, but the problem is that I have no idea which books in my classroom library are the result of the book fair. NO CLUE! I feel really hurt that he thinks I would steal books, and stressed about trying to figure out which books are from the book fair. I sent an email asking if I could write out a check to the school, because I wouldn't even know where to start.
