Abstract: As the Learning Sciences continues to investigate teacher learning, it is important to recognize the myriad and complex contexts teachers may be a part. This paper presents initial findings from an interview study of teachers who teach in prisons. I draw on social practice theories of learning and concepts of ‘emotional relationality’ and ‘transformational possibility’ to argue that teaching in prison requires a level of care and love that calls into question any other normative claims of teaching in these contexts.
