Troops to Teachers
Troops to Teachers

The University of Iowa College of Education’s Teacher Education program has been named Iowa’s official central states Troops to Teachers program.

We believe that veterans’ leadership skills are among the many abilities they have that are transferable to the classroom.

This program will not only help relieve teacher shortages in high-needs subject areas such as math, science, and special education, but help military personnel make successful transitions to second careers in teaching.
