or taging- When I moved from an isolated building to the high school
building I discovered much to my surpprise the number of teachers who
feel the art room is also their supply room for any arty thing the want
to do- I found it necessary to hid scissor, colored pencils, poster board
and resourse material like magazines. It never ceases to amaze me the
number of lost items I find when cleanup at the end of the year.
