Teachers today must continually strive to increase efficiency and improve test scores.  This can be extremely challenging, especially in a prison environment with students having such disparate levels of education

Locked Up With Success offers suggestions on how to maintain a well-managed, organized, disciplined, and safe learning environment - things that can help teachers in any school.  Use my experience to help you teach creatively and successfully in your classroom, while still being able to exhibit the word we hear all the time, accountability.

I am confident my stories and teaching methods, based on what I have observed and experienced in my classroom, will help you succeed.
