"Hot List"

Attention: Superintendents, Principals

and Hiring Officials

Are you trying to hire the best available candidates to meet your teaching needs?  If so, then the Troops to Teachers “Hot List” is exactly what you are looking for. The Hot List is a compilation of eligible veterans looking for teaching jobs in the Missouri/Kansas/Nebraska/Iowa region; it is a publication created and maintained by the Central States Troops to Teachers office with the Missouri Department of Elementary & Secondary Education. 

Troops to Teachers (TTT) veterans are proven, professional team members who are dedicated, creative, mature, and prepared.  Look here first when you need certified staff!  Whether your school needs a special education teacher or a volleyball coach, a TTT candidate is your best choice for a productive and positive workforce.

If you have teaching vacancies at your school (or are expecting vacancies), contact a TTT supervisor to get your own copy of the Troops To Teachers “Hot List”.  This list provides information about veterans who have enrolled in the TTT program and are looking for teaching jobs in your area. (Veterans must be enrolled in TTT to be included on the list.)

To be placed on the Troops to Teachers "Hot List” or to get your own copy call         (877) 530-2765 or send an e-mail to [email protected]
