What Teachers Make by Taylor Mali and Zen Pencils

Zen Pencils plus Taylor Mali! An excellent combination. Taylor Mali is a slam poet whose amazing spoken word piece "What Teachers Make" I first heard last year. Then, this past summer, Zen Pencils, a webcomic that illustrates great quotes, turned it into this. Neat, isn't it?

I don't always consider myself a "real" teacher (no certification and only a year of experience, I mean, come on), but I honestly find this relatable and inspirational. Education degree or no, I've been given a classroom and two hundred students to educate. I respect them and I expect them to respect me, so that leaves everyone else...

Do you respect your teachers?
