A Spoken Poem for Teachers To Remind Us of our True Direction

I love this poem by Donovan Livingston--his commencement address from Harvard University in 2016 (Graduate School of Education). In light of the current discussion largely by non-educators calling for teachers to be armed, this spoken poem reminds me of a truer call to the work we all must do.

  1. I love this poem. I recently saw a cartoon of a teacher carrying a load of social problems. I know I don’t have the strength to carry more, so if guns enter the classroom via conceal carry, I’m exiting the building.
