What Teachers Make | [Taylor Mali]

What Teachers Make

The evolution of Taylor Mali the poet could be measured in the number of people his poetry has directly inspired to be teachers. Or the increasing cast of high school and college-age students who perform his words in forensic competitions. This is Taylor in his element: performing in front of live and writhing audiences demanding and receiving all the rough, raw, and authentic passion of Taylor Mali's poetry.

Publisher's Summary

A poem from Mali's spoken-word collection Conviction.

"The evolution of Taylor Mali the poet could be measured in the number of people his poetry has directly inspired to be teachers. Or the increasing cast of high school and college-age students who perform his words in forensic competitions. It could be measured in national poetry slam competitions. But I believe the poet is only as good as his words, and there is no better showcase for the words of Taylor Mali than this incredible collection of live performances. This is Taylor in his element: performing in front of live and writhing audiences demanding and receiving all the rough, raw, and authentic passion of Taylor Mali's poetry." By Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz, from the liner notes to Conviction.

    "Inspiring"

    I first heard this during a difficult time of year when teaching fifth grade in Brooklyn, NY. I played over and over for all my colleagues. He's 100% correct in his response to teachers' "high" salaries. Teachers make a difference in ways that only teachers really understand.

    "Outstanding performance, inspiring message"

    I love his passion. I love the values he emphasized. I love that he shows how much he cares about each student. It was short but very worth it.
