I am an avid watcher of TED Talks. I found this poignant presentation by Taylor Mali, “What Teachers Make” to be a heart-warming representation of the profession I have chosen as my most favorite occupation in my professional career – to be an educator.
To quote TED Talks about this video, “Ever heard the phrase ‘Those who can’t do, teach’? At the Bowery Poetry Club, slam poet Taylor Mali begs to differ, and delivers a powerful, 3-minute response on behalf of educators everywhere.”
This presentation may be a bit raw in places but the messages is quite clear, teachers make a difference!
