"This book is about my transition from being a public school teacher to an institutional teacher, and the difficulties that I faced.  There were many."

Something to Teach is the unforgettable journey inside the walls of a maximum-security juvenile correctional facility with a teacher who learns that teaching on the inside is not for the faint of heart.

Despite fights in the classroom, threats of violence, and being doused with pepper spray, J.D. Lavelle just wants to teach.

What does he need?

Better students?


Just...something worth teaching.
