Hello, everyone! My name is Rachel Baber and I am a student at Longwood University. I am a Liberal Studies major with a concentration in Elementary Education and a member of the Cormier Honors College. I have a passion for educating young minds and encouraging children to pursue their dreams, and it has always been my dream to become an Elementary School teacher. I chose Longwood because of its reputation of fully preparing future educators to do their jobs well. I feel that in my first year at Longwood University I have already learned so much about the importance of teachers who are motivated and passionate about making a difference. I am excited to learn and grow as a future educator during my next few years at Longwood and I am excited to see what is in store for the future!
