In praise of the greatest job in the world

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

Teacher turned teacher’s advocate Taylor Mali inspired millions with his original poem “What Teachers Make,” a passionate and unforgettable response to a rich man at a dinner party who sneeringly asked him what teachers make. Mali’s sharp, funny, perceptive look at life in the classroom pays tribute to the joys of teaching…and explains why teachers are so vital to our society.

What Teachers Make is a book that will be treasured and shared by every teacher in America—and everybody who’s ever loved or learned from one.



    A gift-sized defense of teachers that comes at the right time, after months of spending cuts in education and attacks on the profession

    Taylor Mali’s poetry performance of “What Teachers Make” has been viewed over five million times on YouTube

    Mali helped create 1,000 new teachers through “poetry, persuasion, and perseverance” and his New Teachers project

Taylor Mali spent nine years in the classroom teaching everything from English and history to math and SAT test preparation. A vocal advocate for teachers and the nobility of teaching, he speaks around the world about teaching. He has a goal of creating new teachers for his Quest for One Thousand Teachers Project through the power of “poetry, persuasion, and perseverance.”
