Veterans can serve again as educators!

by | Mar 28, 2012

Following is a quote from the above website.

“Troops to Teachers (TTT) provides Counseling and Referral services to military personnel interested in beginning a second career in public education as a teacher. The DANTES Troops to Teachers office will help applicants identify teacher certification requirements, programs leading to certification and employment opportunities.”

Veterans have special skills in many areas when leaving the military.  My training in the US Navy was in radio communications and electronics, which translated to information technology and telecommunications in the private sector.  With additional vocational training outside of the military and continuing my college education, I became highly qualified as a trainer in my career and was able to teach at the community college level.  Veterans can choose now to go right into education with the help of the Department of Education.  Teaching is a noble career and veterans can make a huge difference, especially in areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).  America needs great teachers and our veterans leaving the military with a robust vocational education should take a look at becoming a teacher as a career option.
