Troops to Teachers

The Troops to Teachers program is a benefit provided by the Defense Activity for Non-traditional Education Support to qualifying military personnel. The program assists veterans from across the country in their efforts to participate in another rewarding area of public service by sharing their knowledge and experiences with America's youth as professional educators. Qualifying members may be eligible to receive career counseling, job placement assistance and financial assistance. To find out more about how you can make a difference in the classroom as a professional educator, contact the Troops to Teachers North Atlantic Region Director - Vanessa Barron (WV, PA, NY and New England states), Program Assistant - Beth Murray or West Virginia Department of Education Teacher Quality Coordinator - Robert Mellace.
