[The greatest challenge was] to make contact with [the girls in the detention center].
I couldn't expect to correct them, to heal them, but at least to be available to them for whatever they needed and to be as little judgmental as I could and yet get my point across to them. I think that was much more important than the academics, actually, because it was such a brief amount of time. But at least to let them know that somebody was interested in them as a person. I don't know whether I succeeded or not. I was always glad when I came in and didn't find somebody that I knew from before.
