Amarillo College is an excellent starting point for anyone looking to become an educator, and AC offers outstanding certification programs for those interested in careers as early childhood providers or administrators. The Education curriculum at AC provides basic courses for the first two years of a four year curriculum leading to a bachelor’s degree in Education. And AC’s associate degree in Child Development can lead to a position as a lead teacher, director or an owner of a small business.
There are many ways to utilize degrees in Education, from direct instruction of students to helping schools develop curriculum and policies that support the educational process. With continued education, the sky is the limit; however, agencies like Child Protective Services, Child Care Licensing, and the Texas Workforce Commission, as well as preschools, commonly employ AC graduates.
