“Over-caffeinated” was one comment from Twitter. But I believe it’s more than java at work here.
So teacher Colby Sharp digs reading. I get it, you say. But look at the kids. They don’t know what to do at first. Somewhat nervous, they even seem a bit embarrassed for their teacher.

We should all take as much joy in what we do—because it’s infectious.
Have a great year.
