but i was wondering if any of you have read the book True Notebooks by Mark Salzman?
itss a great book about a man (mark) who volunteers at Central Juvenile Hall as a teacher and the boys and in one chapter girls write about stuff going on in their lives or whatever topic mark gives them. but its a great book about the inner thoughts and feelings about boys in the Juvenile hall system. you get to read about a wonderful program called inside out writers. if you haven't read this book i would really recommend it!
i want to work in a juvenile detention center and do something like mark did. but i dont want to be a certified teacher. but i currently enrolled in some classes that will get me on my way to help those boys some day. im only 18 and i have been advised no one would hire me because im so young and the boys would misbehave and not respect me but hopefully thats not true! if anyone has any advise or has a child they wouldnt mind sharing about i would love to hear their stories if your willing to share!!!

thank you
