What Teachers Make

In Praise of the Greatest Job in the World

Taylor Mali

The right book at the right time: an impassioned defense of teachers and why our society needs them now more than ever.

Former middle-school teacher and teachers' advocate Taylor Mali struck a chord with his passionate response to a man at a dinner party who asked him what kind of salary teachers make-a poetic rant that has been seen and forwarded millions of times on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.

Based on the poem that inspired a movement, What Teachers Make is Mali's sharp, funny, reflective, critical call to arms about the joys of teaching and why teachers are so vital to America today. It's a book that will be treasured and shared by every teacher in America-and everyone who's ever loved or learned from one.

AUTHOR BIOS: Taylor Mali travels the country speaking to teachers' groups and recruiting the next generation of classroom teachers with his 1,000 Teachers campaign. He lives in New York. Learn more at www.taylormali.com.
