Poet and teacher Taylor Mali. Taylor Mali uses the skills of a teacher to keep us awake and make us pay attention.
Mali is a vocal advocate of teachers and the nobility of teaching, having himself spent nine years in the classroom teaching everything from English and history to math and S.A.T. test preparation. He has performed and lectured for teachers all over the world, and his 12-year long Quest for One Thousand Teachers, completed in April of 2012…………..Bio
“The art that allows you to rewrite history”…that’s poetry. It perhaps started with “What Teachers Make” but the voice is there in many teachers. He is proud to be the teacher poet. Emerging from the slam poetry or performance poetry movement which has made poetry entertaining as well as profound, Taylor Mali is a hit!
It is with respect that we publish this page. Respect for a good poet and respect for our teachers.
