About the Book

This book was born from the questions of family, friends, and strangers who were curious about my work as a teacher in Folsom State Prison in California. It is a collection of true and memorable experiences that highlight my spiritual journey through the belly of this beast. Enjoy reading about life in this community, prison operations, education in prison, and the fun this teacher had connecting with her captive audience.
