Teaching involves more than traditional subjects. Blend your military experience and desire to teach and consider inspiring young minds through vocational and technical instruction. DoD's SOC CTE provides certificate programs for certain career fields and then you can take advantage of TTT and take your skills to an even greater level.

First, ask yourself (3) other questions...
1. Do you think serving one term in the military will prepare you for civilian employment?
2. Are you learning skills that will transfer into the civilian workforce?
3. Have you taken advantage of your education benefits?
** Before making a life changing decision, such as getting out of the military, listen to this podcast ~ https://soundcloud.com/mentors4mil/teach and visit www.dantes4military.education/ to learn how Voluntary Education powered by DANTES can help! #military #voluntaryeducation #training
