What Teachers Make

One of my student teachers* introduced me to Taylor Mali. I find myself returning to his work again and again, both for content and for writing inspiration. His works of slam poetry are insightful and humourous.

How do we change the style of speech that has pervaded our culture?

* thanks, Mike Kusiewicz!

  1. Whoa. Is all I can say about Taylor Mali’s poem. Next time I’m at a dinner with “rich” people, I’ll take out my iPhone 🙂
