Lisa Richard calls husband

With students crowding around her, third-grade teacher Lisa Richard calls her husband to tell him the good news: She is the winner of Oregon's 2016-17 Milken Educator Award and $25,000. Richard creates exceptional learning experiences for her students that transcend the walls of her classroom. When she realized that most of her students had never been camping, an activity she loves, Richard marshaled a group of parents and held a camping trip on school grounds, complete with tents, hot dogs, marshmallows and activities—and connected the entire event to the class's reading curriculum.
