TMI – The Episcopal School of Texas seeks a full-time Assistant Commandant of Cadets beginning in the 2016-2017 school year. The Assistant Commandant is responsible for assisting the Commandant with the overall planning, organization and execution of the JROTC Department/Military Program for the Texas Military Institute Corps of Cadets providing education for 6th through 12th grade students.

All TMI JROTC instructors are deeply involved in the TMI and local communities. They teach leadership education curricula. They also serve as liaisons between the Army and civilian agencies and perform career and performance counseling for Cadets. They help plan and support activities like the TMI Military Ball, various Cadet Competitions, Cadet Publication production, military ceremonies, community service, and charitable activities. They provide instruction in drill and ceremonies and in the principles of leadership and management. In short, the instructors devote themselves to the Cadets in the classroom and during extensive extracurricular activities. Their hard work and devotion have resulted in an JROTC program which is highly acclaimed on local and national levels.

The TMI Corps of Cadets has been recognized as an Army JROTC Honor Unit with Distinction for over twenty three years. The Leadership Training Course is supported with texts through four levels of instruction addressing the following areas: leadership, citizenship, map reading, first aid, drug abuse prevention, physical fitness, public speaking, financial management, military history, career opportunities and job interview skills, basic rifle marksmanship, military drill and ceremonies. All Upper School Cadets are members of the JROTC program. Middle School Cadets do not attend the classroom phase of Cadet training and are not members of the JROTC program.

Graduating Cadets are often selected for admission to the US Military Service Academies and many are offered ROTC scholarships. Colleges include the following: West Point, Naval Academy, Air Force Academy, Yale, US Merchant Marine Academy, Notre Dame, Rice, Vanderbilt, Tufts, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, University of Texas, Tulane, Clemson, MIT, Citadel and Baylor.

      Native American Affairs & Indian Preferance Act

      If you are Native American or American Indian, including Alaskan Native, and can claim this documentation, via a tribal affiliation, then you have a greater opportunity for employment teaching on or near a reservation. Teaching positions offered with the Bureau of Indian Education, who claim the Indian Preference are eligible, in many states. There are different types of schools on or near reservations: Public, Tribal, BIE, and Mission.

      The Indian Preference Act of 1934 gives equally qualified Indian candidates preference on jobs with the BIE. Verification Form BIA-4432 must be submitted with the application for employment with a BIE school, if claiming Indian preference. Consideration will be given to non-Indian applicants, status or reinstatement eligible persons, in the absence of qualified Indian Preference eligible persons, so this should not dissuade you from teaching on a reservation if you are not a native.

      Public schools on or near reservations, run by the state, do not have that Indian Preference.

      There is also a Teacher Loan Forgiveness program, offered by the federal government, for all teachers teaching in a designated Title I school in which up to 17,000 in federal student loans may be relieved: for teachers teaching in specified content areas, and teaching for at least five full consecutive years. "All elementary and secondary schools operated by the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) or operated on Indian reservations by Indian tribal groups, under contract with BIE, qualify as schools serving low-income students. These schools are qualifying schools for purposes of this loan forgiveness program, as well as Troops to Teachers.

      The Bureau of Indian Education oversees a total of 183 elementary and secondary schools, located on 64 reservations in 23 states. Of these, 59 are BIE-operated and 124 are Tribally-operated under BIE contracts or grants. The Bureau also funds or operates off-reservation boarding schools and peripheral dormitories near reservations for students attending public schools. In regards to certification, if the school receives federal funding, teachers must be "highly qualified" per NCLB, meaning an applicant must obtain state licensing, for most positions. Some provisions are made in certain positions or vocational certifications, where the need is high.

      The application and hiring procedures are uniquely different in each of the three types of school operations discussed above. If you have any questions about the Indian Preference Act, teaching on a reservation, or the types of schools and their procedures, please contact the Troops to Teachers Interim Director of Native American Outreach, Kim Hiebert at, or by phone at 404-413-8103.

      Job Hunting Hints & Tips

      I'm in a certification program, what now?

      Once you have passed your content exams, and are enrolled in a Texas certification program, you are considered "highly qualified" and can begin the process of applying for teaching jobs.

      I'm highly qualified under NCLB, what now?

        1. Once you are highly qualified under NCLB, you are eligible for employment and can start looking for a job. Hiring is done through the district human resources office. Districts usually select candidates for a vacancy from applications already on file.
        2. Since each district may have a different process for applying for a teaching position in their district, check the district's web site where you'd be interested in working
          (Click here for a list of school district web sites and information).
        3. Apply, using the process prescribed by the school district; online application, mail in resume and cover letter, and any additional credentials that may be required at the time of the application.
        4. Check back often, and keep your resume updated.

      In the case where there are no openings in your desired district, there are other avenues that you may take to build a network for future employment:

        1. Apply to become a substitute teacher
        2. Offer help with homework/tutoring students
        3. Volunteer for school mentoring programs
        4. Design & distribute business cards that introduce you as an educator; ie. contact information, certification areas of interest, etc. Carry them everywhere, at all times!
        5. Network, network, network!
