A Random Post: Taylor Mali (my teacher spirit animal)

This man has influenced and inspired me in so many ways. It truly blows my mind the kind of passion he puts into his poetry and his need to spread the good word about teaching. If you ever feel the need to ask a teacher what they make, I suggest you watch this video:



This is the poem that flung away any doubts I had about becoming a teacher. Senior year of high school, when I was making the final decision of where to go to school and was debating on someplace other than Arizona and its amazing teaching program; that's when I needed to hear this. And I did! I made the right decision and I'm on this path now. 

So thanks Taylor Mali, I owe you one.
