What Teachers Make

As the new school year approaches, I appreciate materials that put the work of teaching into a larger perspective.  This short (3 minute) video shows slam poet Taylor Mali – who is also a teacher – responding to someone who questioned the choice to be a teacher.

His answer makes me smile, weep, laugh — and remember the reasons I am glad to be a teacher. I hope he does the same for you.
