BE about it He says the problem with teachers is Whats a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher? He reminds the other dinner guests that its true what they say about teachers: Those who can, do; those who cant, teach. . . . I mean, youre a teacher, Taylor. Be honest. What do you make? This is . . . OUR WORLD OUR LIVES OUR CHILDREN OUR CURRICULUM OUR CHALLENGE OUR WORK OUR ART OUR JOY You want to know what I make? I make kids wonder, I make them question. I make them criticize. I make them apologize and mean it. I make them write. I make them read, read, read. I make them spell definitely beautiful, definitely beautiful, definitely beautiful over and over and over again until they will never misspell either one of those words again. . . . and if someone ever tries to judge you by what you by what you make, you give them this. . . . Here, let me break it down for you, so you know what I say is true: Teachers make a goddamn difference! Now what about you?
