Two years ago, my students and I worked on a mosaic mural outside the music building and auditorium. We worked indoors gluing the tile to tile mesh (I was recuperating from a car accident), then spent the spring tiling the wall. We didn't finish, so we left two rows of tile mesh in the storeroom of the auditorium.
Last school year, the principal got me involved with a painted mural, and then my students wanted to do the Palio project - so we never did finish the auditorium mural.
At the beginning of this year, I checked that our tile was still in the storeroom - and began to plan when we can finish this mural.
Friday, when I went to the auditorium for dance class, I saw that all of the tile was missing - just gone! Nice music teacher had no idea where it was, though he had noticed that it was missing.
Today, I found all of the tile - moved to the storeroom near mural #1, upstairs from my classroom - and three buildings away from the auditorium building.
Apparently, mean music teacher decided to move it. Told no one. Did not mention it to me. At all. Whatsoever.
How difficult is it to say, "Hey, all that tile is kind of in the way, how about we move it to another spot?" How hard is it to say, "I moved the tile to X."????? I'm not an ogre, I am one of the least mean people at school, I'm known for trying to include everyone and make everyone happy - so how could someone NOT bother to let me know?
There are people. And then, there are people.
