Veterans get new opportunity to serve in Georgia
If you're a veteran looking to serve, but in a slightly different capacity, the State of Georgia might be able to help after receiving a new grant.
Georgia Department of Education officials say that they have been giving $1.3 million to help U.S. military veterans begin careers in teaching as part of the Troops to Teachers program.
The program assists transitioning service members with meeting the requirements necessary to become teachers, and helps program participants find employment as a teacher when eligible.
“Our military veterans have already demonstrated extraordinary courage, skill, and leadership,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “They are well-suited to the education profession, and I’m so pleased that this partnership will assist our veterans who want to continue their service in the classroom.”
