The goal of the Troops to Teachers program is to help eligible military personnel (including eligible National Guard) transition into new careers as public school teachers in certain targeted schools.
Resource information from job vacancies and model resumes to links to state Departments of Education and financial assistance are available on the proudtoserveagain.com web site. A local TTT office can also offer guidance and counseling regarding certification requirements and employment.
Stipends up to $5,000 may be provided to assist with the costs of teacher certification. There are also bonuses of up to $10,000 to teach in higher-risk schools. Acceptance of the stipend or bonus is sometimes contingent upon signing a three-year contract according to legislation.
