A photo and quote from Delaney Lohmann. Quote - "I began pursuing my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction after being out of my undergraduate program for a year. As a new teacher, this program equipped me with the ability to apply all that I have learned in my classroom. Through that, I have seen the positive impact it has made on my students. A degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas A&M Texarkana will not only provide you with the knowledge of best practices in education, but allow you to apply what you learn daily to improve your craft in teaching."

A photo and quote from Ashleigh Bridges. Quote- "The Curriculum and Instruction Program at Texas A&M University-Texarkana is one of the best programs for those who want to begin or expand their career in the field of education. It was the program that helped shape me as the educator that I am today. The courses are built to be relevant to the real-world classroom, which helps you be a better educator. The courses that focused on curriculum design and delivery helped me design activities and lessons that allowed me to create a  more hands-on, engaging environment for my students, and the lessons were enjoyable for me to teach. I would design the lessons based on my students needs and desires, which caused my students to fall in love with what I was teaching. There were also courses that allowed me to grow in other ways as an educator than just lesson planning and delivery - research, leadership, and laws. The C&I Program was one of the best decisions I made for my career and for my students. I would go through it all over again just to keep gathering new ideas and outlooks on education so that I can continue to grow as an educator in new ways."

A photo and quote from Allison Wright. Quote- "I am so thankful for the Curriculum and Instruction program because it helped further my knowledge and understanding of the educational world. I am a better teacher and lover of education because of this program."
