It was a slow morning. Traffic held up a number of staff and students trying to get to school on time. Newark is sometimes like that. This group of 8th graders had made it without a problem and as homeroom dragged on a bit too long, they took out a shared book and began reading to each other. Classmates entered and each quickly opened their copy to join in. At the close of each chapter, another student took over reading aloud. When the teacher took charge and directed students to begin their regular classwork, a few protested saying, “One more chapter…please?!”
These are the people I want to hang with.
These are the young men I am privileged to enjoy each day!
