Troops to Teachers

Troops to Teachers

Troops-to-Teachers provides Referral Assistance and Placement services to military personnel interested in beginning a second career in public education as a teacher. The DANTES Troops-to-Teachers office will help applicants identify teacher certification requirements, programs leading to certification and employment opportunities.


As part of the Defense Wide Review, the Department of Defense (DoD) has realigned the Troops to Teachers (TTT) resources to higher priority programs more closely aligned to the National Defense Strategy.


As a result, the Defense Department has cancelled the TTT Program, effective October 1, 2020. The program is scheduled to sunset by the end of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021.


-- Over the coming months, the TTT Program will work closely with participants, hiring authorities and other organizations affected by the program sunset to communicate and coordinate final program details necessary until October 2021. 


-- State offices will continue to assist TTT participants who registered and applied to the program until sunset. 


All program personnel are teleworking due to the national health crisis. Emails are checked remotely and responded to in the order in which they are received. Thank you for your patience, as we work to respond as quickly as possible.
