Career Series: Troops To Teachers – How to Prepare for Careers in Education

We hope that our career series has been beneficial to our readers over the last few months. This month we culminate the series with Careers in Education and a closer look at the Troops to Teachers program. Voluntary education personnel and service members can use career clusters to help focus education plans and goals toward obtaining the necessary knowledge, competencies and training for success in a particular career pathway. If a member is considering a career in education, there are several positions that may be available. Some are even considered Bright Outlook occupations or jobs that are expected to grow rapidly in the next several years, will have large numbers of job openings, or are new and emerging occupations. A list of all occupations can be found at the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), developed under the sponsorship of the U.S. Department of Labor/Employment and Training Administration. The jobs listed for a teaching career pathway that are Bright Outlook occupations include: teacher assistants, preschool teachers, elementary and middle school teachers, secondary school teachers, self-enrichment education teachers, and physics teachers.
