Members of the military are well prepared for a challenging career as a teacher. In fact, studies have been conducted to see how well former members of the military have adapted to teaching roles. In one study, Owings et al. (2006) found that former service members are, “superior to other teachers with similar teaching experience in terms of having a positive effect on student achievement, working well with other teachers and staff, independently handling student discipline problems, following school policies and regulations, and keeping parents informed about their child's academic and behavioral progress” (p. 111). Considering how desirable these qualities are to schools with teacher vacancies, a military member should have no problem finding a teaching position in Texas.
