Troops to Teachers

Posted: Updated:

Military personnel interested in beginning a second career in public education can join a program known as "Troops To Teachers"

Reflecting on the focus of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, the primary objective of Troops To Teachers

is to recruit eligible military personnel to become highly qualified teachers in schools that serve students from low-income families.

This morning Representative Marvin Zerr spoke to Minot State students interested in pursuing the program.

The program helps relieve teacher shortages, especially in math, science and special education.

Financial Assistance is available to help pay for the teacher certification costs along with bonuses up to ten thousand dollars to teach in schools serving high percentage of students from low-income families.

(Marvin Zerr, North Dakota Representative, Troops To Teachers) "We pride ourselves in the Military to become mentors, to be leaders and when we go into a classroom, we are also a mentor as a teacher. You are a leader and help them develop their skills whatever level they are at."
