Troops to Teachers

From Serving Your Country to Shaping Young Minds
 
The Troops to Teachers (TTT) program helps service members and veterans become certified and employed as teachers in K-12 schools. As a military service member or veteran, you possess the skills, discipline, and dedication that can make a significant impact in the field of education. With fewer teachers available, there is an urgent need for individuals with these skills to fill teaching positions.

Regardless of what subject area or grade level you want to teach, each state has specific education, testing, and certification/licensure requirements for eligibility.  A list of state, national, and other resources is provided further down this webpage.
