Kei’lah Brown-McGee, of Belleville, has wanted to help, love and educate young children for some time, and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville East St. Louis Center’s (ESLC) Workforce Development Program has helped place her in the front of the class. “When I graduated high school in December 2014, I applied to AmeriCorps through East St. Louis School District 189,” added Brown-McGee. “I worked in the district’s middle schools and East St. Louis community after-school programs. I knew then that being an educator was what I wanted to do. It has become my passion.”
