From Military to Teacher: Serve Again

As the U.S. celebrates Teacher Appreciation Week and National Military Appreciation month, our colleagues at TeacherReady share their continued commitment to Service men and women, their families, and the education programs and centers of the military. Nearly 900 active duty, reserve, and retired military personnel or their family members are currently enrolled in TecherReady or have earned their professional teaching certificate through TeacherReady. Retired Army officer Heatherann Bozeman talks about her journey from military to teacher and the impact it has in her classroom.

During Military Appreciation Month and throughout the year, we salute the work of our military men and women and their family members. We appreciate the opportunity to offer them and others interested in a career transition to the teaching profession a quality, state-approved, teacher certification program to get there.
