Great slam poetry by Taylor Mali that honors the efforts of teachers
A few years ago I was presenting at the International School of Manila in the Philippines. One of the keynote speakers at the conference was a fantastic poet named Taylor Mali. Taylor is a former teacher turned speaker, consultant, and workshop leader. He specializes in slam poetry. The messages in his poems deeply support the efforts of teachers and the sacrifices that they make to better the lives of the students that they teach. Taylor's slam poetry is powerfully moving.
I remember him performing his 'What do teachers make?' piece to an audience of a couple of thousand at the conference. The words he spoke made me feel so proud to be a teacher, so proud to make such a difference in the lives of the students that I taught. I recently came across a link on Twitter to Taylor's 'What do teacher's make?' video and had to share it on my blog. Check it out below. I'm sure you will find as much value in it as I did. Thanks for reading.
