They Said Thank You is the memoir of a former prison teacher who wants to set the record straight about inmates. In all of her years teaching, only the inmates said 'thank you.' In 1999, Diana Spinney helped to set up the education classes at the new prison in Burlington, CO. Soon she was the GED instructor. During her 14 years, 933 inmates earned a GED. This is the story about how they said 'thank you' and taught the teacher who they really were.
