JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Tracie Plish uses her goofy personality to keep her students excited about learning.
"They don't laugh at me, they laugh with me, so it's fun, it's a good time," Plish said.
The fun follows them home from Bartram Springs Elementary. Plish is always connected with students and parents through a blog she calls Mystery Island Bartram.
"We try to involve the kids in it and get them excited and give the parents resources to use and ways to help the students to get them to love learning," Plish said.
The second grade teacher's students have a special place in her heart.
"The students still love you, they still want to please you and they're excited about learning!"
And the feeling is definitely mutual.
"When I started teaching I knew I was at the right place, I knew it was the right thing for me," Plish said with a grin.
