What Do Teachers Make? Listen Up To This!

Listen to this response, by a teacher, to the question, “What does he make?” That teacher, Taylor Mali, delivers a response that should make all of us proud to be teachers!

Taylor Mali hits the nail on the head whenever someone asks him what a teacher makes. His response is so perfect and incredible that it sent chills down my spine. Teachers make a difference and the really good teachers are changing the world a student at a time with their inspiration and dedication in believing that our next generation can be better than the last. Amen to this man’s wonderful testimony to teachers! (Posted on Facebook, Feb. 9, 2015)

Teachers make a difference. “I can make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor and I can make an A- feel like a slap in the face…how dare you waste my time with anything less than your very best!” “Teachers make a difference,” Taylor Mali says, “now what about you?”
