The Department of Curriculum and Instruction Reading Faculty at Texas A&M University-Commerce took on the editorial duties for the Texas Journal for Literacy Education (TJLE) in the Spring of 2022, after the leadership from the Texas Woman’s University team in the years prior. The A&M Commerce editorial team consists of bright leadership that will continue to not only provide literacy research and content that is relevant at the state level, but the team hopes to continue to push the journal to more of a national presence. The team that was formed comes from a wide array of backgrounds, and will certainly look to fill the journal with diverse perspectives, and make efforts to encourage a balance of scholarly research and practitioner based articles. We also will seek to encourage more of a variety of authors to submit their work–such young scholars, graduate students, teachers, and other literacy educators dedicated to providing quality instruction and practices. We are excited to receieve manuscipts for the next few years, and look forward to learning about and sharing state and national level expertise in literacy education.
