I need some advise here. I am at a very small school my. The shop tools are old and there are few of them, basically one of each tool. I am a second year teacher here and I am glad to help the other teachers because we all need to work together.
The first issue I am having is teachers sending students to get tools and then never returning them, and most of the time they don't bother to let me know they have it. So in class they aren't there and I have to go on a goose chase.
I have the same problem with supplies like screws lumber etc. They get taken for parade floats or what ever. These items usually get returned in the form of what ever object they built them into... and I end up tearing them down.
If I am overreacting let me know, but it makes me want to put a pad lock on the tool room.
Any advice would be great, thank you.
