Taylor Mali is a slam poet and a teacher. And, like other teachers, he’s a little tired of the “How much do you make?” question. In response, he created a poem called “What Teachers Make,” a piece full of the passion teachers across the country put into teaching day in and day out. An illustrated version of the poem’s been making the rounds online, check it out here. Fair warning, there’s a bit of cursing and a dose of anger, but the overall message is a good one. What do you make?
