Troops-to-Teachers Reaches Out to 700

ILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WVEC) — From the battlefield to the classroom, the College of William & Mary School of Education launches a new program. It’s aimed at helping vets become teachers while also addressing the state-wide teacher shortage.

Since May, the William and Mary Troops to Teachers program has already met with more than 700 veterans, provided programs for 10 military bases, and collaborated with 17 teacher colleges and the Virginia Community College System working to encourage teaching as a second career.
