I have a wonderful friend named Wayne Logue. Most of you have seen his work, actually! He is not only the artist behind all of our posters, he is a large chunk of the brains behind Education Illustrated. Anyway...a while back, Wayne showed me a video of a poet named Taylor Mali (not just any poet, Taylor is a "slam" poet with an ingenious sense of humor). Many of his poems are about teachers and other components of education. At the end of the video, I had goose bumps on my arms and was ready to stand up and shout to the masses. I ran across the video again recently and decided I just had to share it with you.
Disclaimer: There are a few "naughty" words and one rude hand gesture in the video. For those of you who are sensitive to this, I assure you the message will overcome any offense you may have gathered!
If you are involved in education in any fashion, you will likely have the same reaction as I. If you don't....we need to talk.
I can't wait until I am in the situation described! I could have not said it better. Thank you Taylor Mali. Read more about Taylor's inspirational story at www.TaylorMali.com. He sells several products and has a free email newsletter that may interest some of you as well.
Did you enjoy this? I look forward to your comments. I have many clips like this to share if you are interested! Let me know...
