    My district requires teachers to order their paper copies to be made by district personnel and then the copies are delivered to the school for the teachers. We are not allowed to make copies at our school, like I’m used to. We were given one ream of paper each, in case we did need to make a limited number of copies (for emergencies, I guess?). I left my one allotted ream in KY mailbox, thinking it’ll be there when I need it, since it’s right next to the copier. I checked my box today, there’s no paper. Instead, I have a letter from the “paper bandits”, saying paper is like currency at this school. It asks me what I’m willing to pay in exchange for my paper. It pisses me off. I’m dealing with horrible student behavior, unreal levels of disrespect from students, no real support from admin, and now I have this childish bullshit to deal with? Paper bandits? The letter they left in my box had an email. So, I emailed asking for it back. I don’t have the time or the mental energy to deal with this. It’s not cute or funny. I’m only allowed one ream of paper, and then you steal it? Because it’s a crime to keep it in my box near the copier? What the hell is this? I hate it here.

    I can’t even tell you how many supplies I paid for myself. Mostly so there would be no excuse for work to not be done. One student, finally got him to put his name on a blank lined paper. That was the only thing he turned in the entire year literally. Of course he was still promoted. Sure he didn’t use many supplies but everybody else’s kid did. Decorated one classroom, moved, asked to leave stuff behind, asked to decorate next room. Other teacher claimed she spent a grand on old room. She actually got reimbursed, I got zip zilch zero for two rooms. Not giving away what essentially belongs to my own family anymore. Purpose served, life does go on.
