I'm a proud teacher who felt prouder after listening to you..
I can't stop watching this.
I had a few teachers like this. I am sad that my children have fewer.
Teachers are highly undervalued. Students are able to mess around and the teachers, government pays them pretty low, and they're whatever in the eyes of society…. EVEN THOUGH, they are the ones who are teaching the future of the world, the future leaders, laborers, dentists, doctors, businessmen, scientists, mechanics, engineers, and yes, even lawyers. Teachers don't get enough praise in society, such a shame…
This is one of the most inspirational things I’ve ever heard.
You are more than amazing. You, SIr, are. An. Inspiration. I would have had an amazing life if I could have made it to be a teacher like you. Thank you for inspiring countless children and maybe even, if we're lucky, a few parents.
I am a teacher and I do make a difference. That is what I live for:)A student shared this with me. She said it reminded me of her.Thank you for the shout out recognizing the work we do.
i have heard it the first time in a lesson with my favourite teacher, the best of the world. This poem is great and everytime I hear it I will remember this perfect, funny, wonderful teacher M.Z
Listening to this irritating, smug, snarky pillar of educational virtue, I realize he's likely never taught in a public school.
I love this because I went to public school with teachers who did care and were about the students BUT I also had the opposite experience. The good teachers often leave to better districts or to private because they are not supported either by their peers and/or the administration. I give credit to teachers like him but I am finding there are less and less teachers like this.
Self-aggrandizing loser who ismt an engineer, but needs to feel important. Just grade the papers and shut up.
I am shook
Typical,arrogant, self-rightous teacher
The lawyer should have asked "How much do you make?"
ahuhuhuhuh — HUUUUUUUUH. LOOOL
Why don't you go into theater if you must stress and strain so hard to read a poem?
I'm a PhD student who just got nominated for teacher of the year at one of the Universities I teach at. I heard this almost a decade ago and loved it. Now that I have been a teacher in grad school for 5 years I almost cried hearing this again.
gives me chills every time
Thank you Mr. Mali <3
I love the line "Don't ever waste my time with anything less than your very best"
Taylor Mali also does porn under the name 'Nacho Vidal' – google it.
My freaking library teacher liked this
but…. what do they say about lawyers?
Well that was just incredible.
Feminist slam poetry has ruined the genre
