Student Poem About Teach For America (Must Listen!)

Credits to Stephanie at  Teacher Under Construction for mentioning this first. It is a few months old but worth a few listens:

As an aspiring teacher and slam poet, this find was absolutely something phenomenal. I’m speechless. You just have to hear it for yourself.

Hallelujah the Saviors are Here

  1. Wonderful poem and reading by that student. It is a shame those who choose to help students over the long haul, through thick and thin, as a lifelong mission are vilified, attacked, and made to feel inferior.

    Screw the business model, privatizers, and reformers. They are in it for the money only.

  2. Spoken like a true student, who sees thru all the crap..the corporate Ed reformers spew! This is definitely a wonderful work of NON-FICTION. I so, enjoyed it! Thanks

    Leave it to the kids to see through the vain/ condescending/patronizing attitudes; maybe the adults could learn something from them.
