Life Satisfaction of Former-Military, Second-Career Changers
Robertson, Heather
Journal of the National Association for Alternative Certification, v9 n1 p3-13 Spr 2014
One-hundred thirty-six former-military members with average age of 51 transitioning to a second-career in teaching were surveyed regarding life satisfaction and were found to be satisfied with their lives. The research compliments earlier studies of second-career teachers as effective teachers, yet provides additional insight on former-military teachers, and their life satisfaction with their new career. Guidelines for counselors, mentors, or administrators working with former-military, second-career teachers are included, as well as implications for future research.
