I really like my students. I do. And I know that this whole School Festival thing is a really big deal – like a massive talent show that everyone has been working on for weeks. So I asked Coteach if I could, you know, drop in and see some of it. For the kids.

  • “Very realistic AK-47s in those kids’ hands.”
  • “I am filled with the Christmas spirit, and that blueberry muffin I just ate.”
