Then, as Catherine pulled out the keys to unlock the door, he pushed her down with two hands, hooked her into a chokehold, and wrestled her onto her back, cracking her head twice against the floor. When she tried to push him off, he twisted the pen she used to score papers from her grip and stabbed her in the temple. Be quiet and stay down, Harvey told her, wrapping his big hands around her neck. Harvey's a burly 5-foot-7 with broad shoulders, close-cropped black hair, and drooping eyes. Blood gushed from the side of her head, matting her permed, blond hair and staining the front of Harvey's neon-orange prison uniform. A year and a half later, Catherine (whose name has been changed for this story) still is visibly shaken. She has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and has to take medication to quiet the sound of Harvey's voice in her head and the phantom grip of his hands on her body. She does not make eye contact. Catherine has not returned to teaching — and she is not sure she will ever feel safe in a classroom again. But she wants to make sure other prison educators can. The department tried to dismiss the lawsuit, arguing that a prison, by nature, is a dangerous place and that Catherine knew the risks when she took the job.

Robyn Rison and Jean Hardiman are both raising little ones - Robyn, two boys ages 5 and 3, and Jean, two girls ages 6 and 4 (with a grown stepdaughter as well). JEAN: Every weekday morning when I have to wake up my kids, I think of my dad. During the years when I was in school, he took on the gargantuan task of teaming up with my alarm clock to wake me up in the morning. A little background: I sleep like I'm dead. But there my dad was, every day, with a twinkle in his blue eyes and a way-too-chipper song on his lips, usually, "When you're smiling, the whole world smiles with you. " It was half genuinely sharing his joy of the morning, and half mocking, I think. I would always ask for five more minutes, and he would give them to me, before going full-throttle with the happy nagging until I've dragged myself up like some kind of sluggish zombie. They are 6 and 4, and already this is quite the tedious chore, one that makes me appreciate my dad more with every passing day. So kind, even when I haven't deserved it. So much zest for life, taking on each day's hard work, bungled plans and people perplexities with a work ethic, sense of humor and optimistic attitude that I will forever strive to imitate (after coffee,... Here are a few of my dad's sayings: "Chop-chop," for when I was running late (which was a lot, though I still have no idea what chopping has to do with hurrying).
