If you have spent any time on YouTube and if you are a teacher (good assumption for my readership), you might have come across Taylor Mali. He is a 'spoken word artist' and a teacher. Before this blog moves into the 'here are some good ideas for your classroom' mode, I want to linger a tad more in the 'inspiration' mode. So, bookmark this page and come back to Mali's inspiration in October, or even the gray days of November.
Here he is on YouTube...
and here is a great visual presentation of his 'poem' from Slideshare.net.
I love Taylor Mali. I love dedicated teachers. Life is good.
