Our Vision

The Instructional Material Bureau works to ensure High Quality Instructional Material is in the hands of every educator and learner in New Mexico and used to its fullest extent.

Our Mission

The mission of the Instructional Material Bureau, in support of educators and learners, is to vet instructional materials through a rigorous review process, conducted by New Mexico educators, to determine alignment with New Mexico Content Standards and Benchmarks and to inform local educational agencies of the efficacy of the process and provide them access to high quality instructional material.

The 2018 Social Studies Dream Team is a huge success!

Secretary Ruszkowski and the Social Studies Dream Team

Secretary Ruszkowski speaking to the Social Studies Dream Team at the Capstone held in June 2018.

Mr. Ackerman, a teacher from Roswell High School, applied and accepted the opportunity to participate in the 2018 Social Studies Dream Team because “I was excited for the opportunity to work with like-minded individuals that want to better prepare our students for the future.  I met teachers from around the state, and I enjoyed working with a 22-year veteran teacher from Taos. The future for social studies teachers in New Mexico is promising with the great group of teachers from this dream team collaborating with one another.”

Ms. Tiger, a teacher at Corrales International Charter, says “being part of the TeachFest Dream Team is an amazing experience. While I have taught for 25 years, I still feel as though I have so much to learn…This opportunity has sparked my desire to get more involved with educational leadership in New Mexico.”
