Pearl Arredondo creció en el Este de Los Ángeles como hija de un célebre pandillero quien pasaba sus días entrando y saliendo de la cárcel. Muchos profesores la descartaron pensando que tenía problemas con la autoridad. Ahora que ella misma es profesora, está creando un tipo diferente de escuela y les cuenta a los estudiantes su historia para que sepan que está bien si a veces la tarea no es lo primero en sus mentes.
