    Demerits, Detentions & Dismissals: The Works of Taylor Mali

    Utilizing the works of former teacher, slam poet champion and teaching advocate, Taylor Mali, teacher and actor Jerry Seeger strives to unearth the humanity of the world’s finest profession, weaving together Mali’s works with humor and pathos.  Whether it is extolling the virtues of the profession or illustrating compassion for a student’s suffering, the teacher guides his “students” through the unexpected twists and turns of the classroom.  “I know you can do these things I make you do. That’s why I make you do them.  I’m a teacher and that’s what we do.”    Seeger’s production of Demerits, Detentions & Dismissals: The Works of Taylor Mali was selected for the inaugural Ft. Lauderdale Fringe Festival in May of 2015, where it opened to rave reviews.  Seeger, a veteran of fourteen years in the classroom, is the Director of Drama at St. Thomas Aquinas High School. He was recently honored as  Broward ArtsEd Theatre Teacher of the Year for 2016.
