Mountain Pacific Troops To Teachers services Nevada

This year Clark County (school district), Las Vegas has about 600 substitute teachers, because they do not have and cannot recruit enough teachers for its classrooms. CC has an immediate need to replace the 600 substitutes with full time certified teachers right now!

CC is looking at MPTTT and TTT to provide them with 250 fully certified teachers in school year 2015-2016 MPTTT is committed to supplying the 250 TTTers,

Interested TTT participants are encouraged to contact:

CSM (Ret) Sherman Fuller of the Mountain Pacific Regional TTT office at 719-282-5672, or email him at: sfuller@troopstoteachers.net

Why teach in Clark County, Nevada?

Clark County (school district) has an immediate need for Troops to Teacher participants who are ready to teach, now! Also in the near future, in school year 2015-2016, MPTTT is looking for about 250 TTT participants to teach in the schools system. So, if you are close to earning your teaching certificate or state license, Nevada has a process to accept out of state certification that can provide the participant with Nevada teacher certification.

Clark County is close to Nellis AFB, and the tax structure does not tax income or your military retirement. The housing market is beginning to recover, and there remains a surplus of affordable housing - it is buyer's market.

Nevada is much more than just Las Vegas and desert:

Valley of Fire State Park
Hoover Dam
Lake Mead National Recreation Area
Nevada National Parks
Bryce Canyon National Park

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!
