Troops to Teachers Ohio has much to offer veterans who want to enter subsequent careers that engage and inspire young minds. Through its Alternative Educator Licensure Program, the Buckeye State offers anyone who holds a bachelor's degree the chance to earn a teaching credential. In addition, qualifying individuals who have a high school diploma, five years of documented work experience, and complete an approved preservice career-technical education program in these areas can teach in career technical programs.

Ohio also recognizes the knowledge and expertise our nation's veterans can bring to educating our children. In recent years, Ohio lawmakers have increased starting pay for veterans entering the teaching force; provided immediate, in-state tuition rates to relocating veterans and family members; and eliminated veteran applicant fees for initial and renewing teaching licenses.

Ohio has a growing need for dedicated teachers and administrators. Join us so you can help educate our future generations.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for FY22 reauthorized the national Troops to Teachers program.

Service members and veterans interested in teaching should complete the "Program Interest"  form.

Troops to Teachers was established in 1993 to assist transitioning service members and veterans in beginning new careers in public, charter, and Bureau of Indian Affairs schools.

Troops to Teachers is a national program, funded and administered by the Department of Defense through the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES). The program helps eligible military personnel begin new careers as teachers in preK-12 public schools where their skills, knowledge, and experience are needed most.

The goal of the Ohio office is to identify these service men and women and help facilitate the process of obtaining their teaching certificate and finding employment as an Ohio teacher. Not only finding, but

retaining quality teachers is, and should be, of particular interest to Ohio due to the current teacher shortage.
