    See why can’t my teachers be like that?

  5. nohnoelle

    I totally wish you had been my teacher.

    I LOVE this poem. So far, I haven’t had to defend keeping my school library open to the students, instead of closed for a meeting. . . . but if I do. . . I’m probably going to play this for whatever crazy person tries to close it.

    I don’t care if the library is the only place big enough to hold your meeting, it’s also the only place in the school WITH BOOKS!

    I cracked up at that part, I cracked up at alot of parts(:

  12. KaritaMcB

    Awesome!!!

    If you can make it through this poem without laughing at least once, you have absolutely no sense of humor.

    Hear hear! Regular teachers have meetings after school, during lunch, and/or before school. Why should administrators be any different? GIVE THE KIDS THE LIBRARY BACK!!!

  15. msjennhill

    Yeah, still love you. I listen to your poetry over and over and think, yes. I need to play your vids here to the moronic legislature in Tallahassee, Florida.

    I’m thinking about how to share this with our local board of education. Our cuts to education will result in the de facto axing of our school library by assigning the librarian to other duties.

    “…is so obtuse that i am incapable of appreciating the irony in it!!!”

    LOL

    “I do not care if the library is the only place in the school big enough to accommodate your meeting. It’s also the only place in the school WITH BOOKS. >:[”

    That kind of made my day. Thank you, Mr. Mali! Wouldn’t it have just been smarter to schedule his meeting AFTER school? Everyone could be happy.

    haha I love this! I’m a teacher who had library time for my class canceled so that the principal could have an administrative meeting and watching this made me laugh so much!

    I know this is the least inspiring and poetic of all of his stuff but it’s my favorite lol it’s so unexpected and really fun to listen to!

    The person who told you that was wrong. It would be “one of my classes is.” One is the subject. Classes can’t be the subject because it’s a prepositional phrase. “Of my classes” can’t be the subject. Though even if it weren’t one would make it singular because one is individual.

  23. garrenn

    classes isn’t the subject. The subject is one, which is singular. So it would be “is.”

  24. reasonmastaa

    it is also the only facility WITH BOOKS!!! lol… that guy is great!

  25. Candyman757

    I hope to be a teacher like this one day
