The popular web comic Zen Pencils takes inspirational quotes and illustrates them for powerful effect. This time, they took on the true significance of what it means to be a teacher.

The comic is based on a spoken word poem by Taylor Mali.

The poem was inspired by an actual conversation that Mali, a teacher of nine years,

had at a dinner party where he was asked "What do teachers make?" He has since

gone on to write a book of the same name.
