I'm not sure that anything will ALWAYS work, but this has helped me.
I went to the principal and talked to him about the problems of teachers
borrowing, interrupting my classes, and either damaging or not returning
equipment. This is the solution we came up with.

The person in our school who is in charge of ordering supplies, now orders
extra basic art supplies for the teachers, such as paint, construction and
drawing paper, etc. I could not get her to order any brushes, so I
contributed a classroom set of brushes.

Now when teachers want supplies, I can send them on to the office for their
supplies without them getting mad at me. BUT even doing this, we still have
a problem, because so many teachers never plan ahead and they must turn in a
request form 24 hours in advance to office...
