JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Lisa Rickerson teaches fourth grade at Callahan Intermediate School. Although she's taught from first to sixth grade -- she says fourth is her favorite.

Rickerson says she wants to have that same affect on her students so she tries to keep learning fun by things like incorporating activities that allows each student to play a role, "For instance if we have a math lesson, give everybody a magnifying glass and say, 'We're going to magnify numbers by tens and hundreds!'" she explains. "But if they have that magnifying glass in their hand then all of a sudden it's more real to them and they can actually do something and they can get excited about it."

Rickerson says her desire to teach grew out of the positive educational experiences she had when she was a student.
