Notes: 
The instructor of the administrative credential classes is Christi Rubin. Her email is christirubin@gmail.com Instructor approval is needed to register for the classes since a student must be active in early childhood to take the classes. (Program Management is the first a sequence of three classes -- and two practicums -- that lead to a New Mexico Early Childhood Program Administration Certificate from the Office of Child Development. Professional Releationships and its practicum are the final courses in the series. Doña Ana teaches all the required courses each year – offering different classes in the fall, spring and summer semesters.)
