The Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) degree is a specialized academic associate degree that transfers to a baccalaureate program leading to initial Texas teacher certification. It will provide you everything you need from a two-year college to give you a head start upon transferring to a four-year program.

Work as a Texas public school paraprofessional. With an AAT, you can qualify to work in other early education settings or in positions for which an associate degree is required. In other words, you will leave Panola ready for some jobs in the educational system.

Our schools are changing. Our expectations for public education are evolving. And while change is exciting, it is also scary. As a result, American children and teens need a new generation of bold young adults ready and willing to lead them into a future full of both promise and change.

Will you be that bold educator?

If so, the Panola College Department of Education can’t wait to meet you!
