Troops to Teachers Colorado

The state of Colorado has approximately 409,000 veterans and serves over 900,000 students across urban and rural contexts. The state, like all others in the country, is experiencing an increasing teacher shortage in critical content areas such as math, science, and special education, as well as in our rural and ever-growing suburban areas. While we have a teacher shortage, we have a population of over 400,000 highly talented, skilled, socially conscious military veteran members ready to fill the void and support our children.

The Troops to Teachers Colorado program supports matching veterans with high needs education areas including our geographically isolated rural school areas, our high needs socioeconomic areas, and hard to fill subject areas such as math, science, special education, foreign language and STEM subjects.

The program focuses on the face-to-face relationship building at six military bases as well as with local schools and districts, higher education and communities. There is also strong relationship development between CDE and veterans through targeted recruitment, career guidance, and support into the classroom.
