Taylor Mali (who was born on March 28, 1965) is a teacher and poet. Generally considered to be the most successful poetry slam strategist of all time, […] Mali was one of the original poets to appear on the HBO original series „Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry.“ […]
A native of New York City and vocal advocate of teachers and the nobility of teaching, Mali himself spent nine years in the classroom teaching everything from English and history to math S.A.T. test preparation. (Quelle)
In What teachers make bringt er sprachlich pointiert und mit Leidenschaft auf den Punkt, was er als „nobility of teaching“ ansieht:
„Let me break it down for you, so you know what I say is true: *I make a goddamn difference! Now what about you?*“
