Texas Troops to Teachers (TTT) is a federally funded program designed to assist retiring and separating military veterans to become teachers in their next careers. Since its beginning in November 1995, the Texas Troops to Teachers Office has counseled over 21,000 veterans, advising them on routes and programs to achieve full teacher certification in Texas, and referring them to districts for employment. Texas leads the nation in the number of veterans who have become teachers, with over 2,000 hired since 1995.

Nationally, the Troops to Teachers Program is funded by the federal Department of Defense, but is managed by the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) office in Pensacola, Florida. The DANTES office manages the registration of TTT participants, distributes all funding, and maintains contact with TTT participants who have received financial benefits.

At the state level, the Texas Troops to Teachers Office provides information and guidance to participants on all aspects of teacher certification. Texas TTT works with teacher certification programs to assist our participants in selecting the program that will work best for their certification process. We actively market the TTT program to all university and alternative certification programs, and provide funding to eligible participants to help pay for their certification programs and incentive bonuses for those who teach at high-needs schools. The Texas TTT office works closely with military installations to be sure that all eligible veterans who want to become teachers are aware of the benefits available from TTT. All service members and veterans, whether they qualify for funding from TTT or not, are encouraged to contact the Texas TTT office for information and assistance in becoming teachers in Texas.
