Teacher's Lesson Plans Stolen In Break-In

It may just be a scene out of the movie "Animal House" where the fraternity steals the tests answers. Rocky Mount police say two youngsters broke into an elementary school and the only thing missing was a teacher's lesson plans.

It happened Sunday evening at Williford Elementary School on Williford Street.

The school's alarm system went off and when authorities arrived they saw the two youngsters running out of the school.

Police say the two got into room 412 through an open window and nothing else was damaged or taken.

So far there have been no arrests.

    I would guarantee that it has got to be two students of that teacher for it to be only a book of lesson plans stolen. How much do you want to bet that the kids were trying to get out of having to do schoolwork LOL or that they were trying to get all the answers to all the questions on the assignment or test LOL?

    In my classroom my areas are MINE. I tell the students on the first day that if I catch them near my desk, computer stand, or cabinet I will chew their hand off. 12 yr olds are fun to lie to. But with that they respect my space.

    I am a teacher and if I leave anything unattended, I can expect it to be gone. I can't keep a pencil or pen on my desk without it disappearing. Kids just expect to take whatever they see and it be o'kay. I have a very difficult time doing activities with students because supplies are stolen before the next class has an opportunity. Kids need to be taught to respect people's property. I can't even allow kids to borrow calculators anymore because they disappear even when painted bright yellow!

    i'm with J. I do give the kids credit on enjoying their youth, but if their caught, they should definitely have to do some community service. Maybe 40 hours of helping the teacher write new plans.

    I agree with Kelly - what belongs to me is mine to mess with. I know that if something DOESN'T belong to me - I leave it alone. Too many people (children and adults alike) are NOT being taught that lesson.

    "my lesson plans, my desk, my hard work...and who has a right to take them?" Should you be expected to carry everything from your job around with you Anonymous? I didn't think so...

    Let me try this again since apparently my last resonse wasnt sweet enough. I'm not stupid enough to leave my garage door up. Anyone that does, deserves to have things stolen because its a clear invitation. Second, NO I will not blame the kids completely because its not JUST the kids fault. Its BOTH of them. School and kids..and PARENTS actually. So like I said in my first post...the kids aren't the sole problem.

    You people have no common sense. I'm not stupid enough to leave my garage door up!! GET A CLUE. If you do that, your DESERVE to have things stolen. The SCHOOL should make sure the SCHOOL is locked up. The PARENTS should know where their delinquents are. Take a breath. I rest my case and stand with my first comment.

    What? No one is willing to give the kids the benefit of the doubt? Maybe they just wanted to get a jump start on their lessons. lol Besides, if I were the teacher, I wouldn't leave anything as valuable (in terms of time spent) as lesson plans behind. Carry it with you.

    Come J. in Gville. Blame the kids completely. We should all be able to leave everything unlocked and open and expect things to still be there. Not realistic, but come on now. That is the problem with today....The kids broke in....Their fault. Not anyone elses.
