    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

  • 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?
