ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- Renee Hobbs' students know her by her enthusiasm.
To get the kids into reading, the Crookshank Elementary teacher gets animated, acting out the books they read.
Hobbs worked at Winn-Dixie for 20 years before deciding to pursue teaching.
"That's what I wanted to do my entire life, so (I) went back to school and started my second career basically," Hobbs explained.
After 13 years of teaching, she said the career change is a dream come true.
"If you've got the struggling kids and all of the sudden you see that light bulb go on, that's the best feeling in the entire world," Hobbs said.
