Corrections will provide an opportunity that cannot be read in a textbook or learned watching prison reality shows. Working with staff and offenders is a challenge, but a challenge with great rewards. Seeing a staff person promoted that you have mentored is rewarding. Similarly, watching an offender complete a high school or college degree is equally rewarding. Sure there are bad days in prison. However, these types of events will remind you that great work is done inside these prisons and that you made the right choice.
