SIKESTON - The future of our nation depends on the students we are educating today. And though it's difficult to believe, the class of 2000 - young people who will lead the United States in the next century - have just entered first grade. Johnathan Moxey, who expects to go to college for two years, hopes to find dinosaur bones. "Everybody likes them (dinosaur bones) but there aren't many left." Jessica Nunn of Mattthews Elementary has pretty high expectations. "I'd like to be a teacher because then you wouldn't have to work nights." She expects to make about $9 or $12 a year because she doesn't think teachers make very much. Lee Hunter Elementary's Cal Crader plans to be an assistant lawyer for his father. According to Crader, the amount of money you make depends on how good your job is. Crader expects to make at least $1,000 a year.
