Veterans Fill Teaching Gap in Colorado

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — As a new school year starts, Colorado is facing a critical shortage of teachers and the problem is only getting worse.

But some former soldiers are helping fill some of the shortfall.

Specialist 4 Sean Gallup is getting out of the Army to do something he’s always wanted to do: Become a teacher.

“You should just constantly 100 percent be trying to teach someone something because for me the day you stop learning is the day you just become ignorant so I think teaching is one of the best professions there ever is,” he said.
