I will never forget being at the first parent meeting (or maybe it was a beginning of school concert). Jerry starting off by saying (while doing his shuffling, insecure, mumbling routine) he was so glad to be back teaching middle school as he had spent the last five years in Huntsville at the prison. Thought that the principal was going to stroke out. Jerry actually had taught music at the prison for five years (which is a whole lot more stories). After a few moments of dead silence, he clarified that for the parents!
