YouTube Tuesday: Teacher preacher

My mom's a retired teacher. My dad is a former teacher. One of my sisters is a teacher. Three of my aunts and two of my uncles are teachers (or retired teachers).

I've got a lot of respect for what teachers try to do. Pounding knowledge into the thick skulls of the bratty offspring of the over-privileged, or trying to get through to future gang bangers without getting shanked or shot in the process. All the while dealing with snotty overbearing parents or, worse, apathetic absentee parents.

I can't think of a more underpaid profession. What does a teacher make? Ask Taylor Mali...

  1. My spousal unit is a burned out former teacher too. She needs to see that.

  2. My parents were teachers, too. That was awesome.

  3. I don't have any family members that are teachers, and I think that was fantastic.

    Good stuff.


Your turn to riff...
