Spouses to Teachers
Introduction
Spouses to Teachers (STT) is a Department of
Defense program designed to provide military
spouses an opportunity to obtain information
regarding teaching credentials and careers in
public education.  This initiative recognizes
that teaching is a professional career field of
great interest to military spouses.  However, key
to becoming a teacher is obtaining teacher
credentials accepted by the states in which
military families are likely to be
stationed.The Spouses to Teachers Program
creates a central office that provides military
spouses with information about these
credentialing requirements.  Both the national
and state STT Offices will maintain websites to
provide information regarding state licensure and
reciprocity requirements, credentialing programs,
potential teaching jobs and informative links
which will facilitate entry into the teaching
profession. The state offices will counsel and
advise spouses on their options for achieving
certification, and provide them with informative
materials to guide them through the process.  STT
provides funds (up to 250) to reimburse eligible
spouses for the costs of examinations required
for certification. Although STT itself will not
provide other financial assistance, the state
offices will compile helpful information on
sources of
