I'm having trouble keeping my supplies from being damaged or stolen.
Erasers are being torn apart and colored pencils broken. When I have a
substitute, I return to a terrible mess! The rulers are bent and marker
lids are missing! I feel like taking everything away from the students,
but they don't even bring their own pencils to class- what would we work
on? It's difficult to teach the students who want to learn when I'm
constantly watching the dishonest ones. Does anyone have advice in
handling such problems?
