Teaching as a New Career for Military Personnel.
The Teaching as a New Career initiative was developed to help alleviate teacher shortages in the United States and to introduce separating, retiring, and retired military personnel to a second career in the teaching profession. This handbook provides information on the following topics: (1) requirements for teaching in elementary and secondary public schools, private schools, and vocational/technical schools; (2) incentives for teaching; (3) relative demand by teaching area; (4) National Teacher Examination; (5) State Departments of Education; (6) State Departments of Vocational Education; (7) alternative, accelerated, and adult teacher education programs; (8) national organizations for private schools; (9) private schools/state representatives; (10) teaching opportunities abroad; (11) Section Six Schools (on military installations in the United States); (12) Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC); and (13) teacher education references. The main criterion for the programs, since they are for adults with leadership and group dynamic skills and experience, is flexibility. Specific criteria which differ from school to school are listed along with sites in Florida, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and California which have established programs to date. (LL)
