Troops to Teachers
Troops to Teachers is a U.S. Department of Education and Department of Defense program that helps eligible military personnel begin a new career as teachers in public schools where their skills, knowledge and experience are most needed. The program enriches the quality of American education by placing mature, motivated, experienced and dedicated personnel in our nation's classrooms. Thousands of military retirees, separating active duty personnel, and currently drilling members of the reserve components are discovering new and rewarding careers in teaching our nation's children. Veterans who have become public school teachers are “Proud to Serve Again.” The program produces quality teachers in high demand areas, such as mathematics, science and special education, who give back by teaching in economically disadvantaged urban and rural schools.
