Turning Veterans into Teachers

VET_Blog_DTOP_BelowTitle_300x250

Our country is giving back to our veterans so they can give back to our communities through the Teach For America Program. Teach For American is filling high-need classrooms with high achieving individuals to help students succeed. Most recently an initiative to lower the number of unemployed veterans is using their experience and passion to serve their country, by placing them in these classrooms.

Watch as Army Paratrooper Brian Thompson tells us his experience as a teacher in a Washignton D.C. high school and how years on the battle field allows him to give students something that other teachers with his experience couldn’t; someone to listen, someone to understand the loss of a friend, and someone to share experiences.
