Kate Curry, Yocum teacher, graduated from the Texas A&M University at Texarkana (TAMUT) with a degree in General Studies, focusing in Interdisciplinary Studies and Special Education. Mrs. Curry teaches Special Education K-2 Resource/Inclusion at the Primary. Mrs. Curry was drawn to Texas A&M University Texas due to the proximity to her hometown of Hughes Springs, Texas. “I chose TAMUT because it was close to home, but ended up marrying an Arkansas native, so I ended up being far from my college! I was blessed, however, to complete my degree 100% online.” Another thing that made her experience at TAMUT so special was her Emergent Literacy Development professor, Carol Cordray. “She was very particular about assignments, attendance, etc. There were times I was so frustrated and ready to quit. I ended up learning so much from her and she made me view literacy through a teacher's lens instead of a learner's. She made me a much a better teacher for it, through the quality of her instruction.” Thank you, Mrs. Curry, for sharing about TAMUT!

Knowledge and awareness is a huge part of wellness. We can't do better until we know better. This week's #WellnessWednesday highlights what students across the district have been celebrating this week: Red Ribbon Week (RRW). Founded in 1988, RRW originally began as a grassroots movement to bring awareness to the killing and destruction drugs were causing in America. The red ribbons were worn by people across the country in response to the murder of a Enrique "Kiki" Camarena, a Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent who had been kidnapped by drug traffickers in Mexico. Now, the week-long program for kindergarten through 12th grade focuses on drug awareness and prevention activities. It is our hope that these activities will help combat the staggering statistics in our own county. According to the Arkansas Foundation for Medical Care, Union County is one of the highest-risk counties in Arkansas for opioid misuse and deaths. To learn more about the Red Ribbon Campaign, visit www.redribbon.org. #WeAreESD #RedRibbonWeek

Kevia Gill, a freshman teacher at El Dorado High School, graduated from the University of Arkansas at Monticello with a Master of Arts in Teaching, as well as a Bachelor of Business Management. She currently teaches Keystone, a freshman-level foundation course. Mrs. Gill chose UAM due to the close proximity to home and the 11: 1 student-faculty ratio. “I strongly felt that the numbers would facilitate my own engagement as a student in the classroom.” She also enjoyed the hometown feel and the way the faculty and staff were warm and welcoming to not only her, but also her family. Being a part of Weevil Nation gave her a sense of belongingness, which helped make her experience special. “UAM offers over 80 academic programs. For students that have not yet identified an intended area of study, there is truly something for everyone, plus a supporting staff to assist you along the way.” In addition to strong support in academics, UAM offers over 70 student organizations/clubs, 20 intramural leagues, and 10 NCAA Division II sports teams. Thank you, Mrs. Gill, for sharing about your UAM experience!
