Overview

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.

Praise

 “A heartfelt plea never to give up… An inspirational tribute to teaching and learning.”
Booklist
 “Big, bright life lessons in a pocket-sized package…Delivers a powerfully positive message…A valentine to teachers everywhere. Mali proves himself a dedicated, caring teacher within what he considers a hobbled American education system.”
Kirkus Reviews
 “Straightforward, fast-paced, and trenchant. … [An] evocative, small book bulging with a big idea—“to remind teachers that they are dearly loved.” ”
Publishers Weekly
