My name is Rebecca Lyn McElyea. I am twenty years old and am currently enrolled at Jefferson College to receive my Associate of Arts in Teaching. My plan is to then transfer to Missouri Baptist University and take classes through the Jefferson College branch. I have a passion for education. Education is an important part of life, because we all learn. We don't just learn in the classroom; we learn everywhere we go about others and our world around us. It is important to me that all students receive a good education to become an upstanding, honest, and hardworking member of our society. Every child deserves this kind of an education.
