profile on a new instructor here on a regular basis.
I am Rebekah
McKnight and I teach at Southern Heights Elementary.
grew up in Hobbs. I graduated from Hobbs High
School and later from USW.
The reason I want to teach is because I love students. I want to be their foundation for the remaining
years of their education. I want to make a difference in their lives and show
them love they may not know in any other setting.
My favorite memory from my own days in school is when I would go on choir trips. I loved to sing and my teacher
was amazing at helping me get the confidence I needed to perform.
In my spare time I like to ride
motorcycles and attend rallies. I also love to read and write poetry and short
My favorite book is anything with mystery
and suspense. My favorite book of all time is Wait Til Helen Comes which was a
book I read as a young teenager.
