Taylor Mali's mastery with words has inspired many to go into the teaching profession. He has traveled throughout the world to perform and lecture for teachers. Mali recently published a book of essays, "What Teachers Make: In Praise of the Greatest Job in the World," which chronicles his life from teacher to advocate. Mali spoke Tuesday at Black Hills State University as part of the Madeline A. Young Distinguished Speaker Series.
