9. Watch your searches – I read a court case recently about a P.E. teacher who found out that someone in the locker room stole $5 from another student. That teacher would stop at nothing to get the $5 back, including “strip searching” the students to find the money. Was finding the $5 worth throwing your career away? If you are in a situation where you are absolutely certain that a student is holding stolen items, illegal drugs, or a weapon…notify the campus security officer or administration. They know more about searching kids than you do.
