JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- This week's Teacher of the Week teaches 5th grade at Kernan Trail Elementary.
Ricky Lamberson has been there seven years. His favorite subject to teach is science.
"A lot of the experiments that we do are hands-on," Lamberson said. "It really creates some concrete learning that the kids can not only enjoy while they're doing it, but it's easy for them to retain the knowledge as well."
Lamberson knew from a young age he wanted to be a teacher like his mother.
"Anytime that we had days off of our school, if she was still in school my sister and I would come help her," Lamberson explained. "Her love for kids and her passion for kids was really instilled in me."
His focus on experiences keeps the kids hooked on learning.
