ALSDE: Troops to Teachers



The Troops to Teachers ADVANTAGE...


The Troops to Teachers (TTT) program enriches the quality of American education by helping to place mature, motivated, experienced, and dedicated personnel in our classrooms. Thousands of retiring military and Reserve Component personnel are discovering rewarding new careers in teaching and helping to build and sustain our communities starting with our children.

The program has been successful in producing quality teachers, a high percentage of whom are men and minorities. In addition, they have experience beneficial to successful teaching in high-demand fields such as mathematics, science, and special education, and they are teaching in high-demand areas such as inner cities and outlying rural areas.
