Troops to Teachers


Troops to Teachers

The purpose of Troops to Teachers is to assist eligible military and reserve personnel transition to a new career as public school teachers in schools serving students from low-income families. A network of state offices provide counseling, referral and placement assistance. Often this includes evaluating participants’ educational and work background and providing information about state teacher licensure requirements, schools of education and alternative pathways to licensure. Participants may also be eligible for financial assistance to help pay for the cost of teacher licensure.

Veterans or current military personnel who are interested in teaching may be eligible for the federal Troops to Teachers program.

More than 9,500 former Troops have become teachers, teaching in America’s classrooms, with help from Troops to Teachers. These individuals make a difference in the life of children everyday.
