Monday, a few teachers had their cell phones stolen, one had her wallet stolen, and a kid had his backpack stolen. Everything has been recovered and the kid responsible for it all was arrested yesterday.
Overheard in the staff room:
“It’s such a shame. I guess I’ll have to do a better job locking my door.”
“Part of why he got turned in is that his friend found out whose phone he stole and she said she couldn’t let him do that to me.”
“These kids work so hard all the time to disprove the stereotypes about kids in this school; it’s an added insult when someone breaks that trust.”
Overheard in the halls:
“That kid was new here. He didn’t know how we do things. You don’t just go and disrespect teachers like that. If he ever comes back, we’ll make sure he understands this time.”
