Taylor Mali – love him

I discovered this slam poet, Taylor Mali, via comments on a Comment is Free blog post I was reading about how to deal with dinner parties as a teacher. Do you lie about what you do? Or do you own up and face the inevitable barrage of comments and opinions from people whose only experience of the classroom is their own school days 10, 20 years ago and whose only informant is the Daily Fail’s regular doses of teacher bashing. The one at the bottom – what teachers make – is strong, powerful and passionate, but they’re all really worth a look.
