FROM:             Susan A. Gendron, Commissioner

RE:                    New England Troops to Teachers Program

I am pleased to announce that the Maine Department of Education has recently entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with the New England Troops to Teachers Office of the University of Maine System.   Under this agreement the Maine Department of Education, with the assistance of the New England Troops to Teachers Office, will facilitate the certification of Troops to Teachers participants as teachers in Maine public schools, and assist in the marketing of the Troops to Teachers program to the Maine education communities.

Our Certification Office will provide counseling and guidance to Troops to Teachers applicants and conduct transcript evaluations in relation to the certification requirements and programs of the State of Maine.

The attached letter from the New England Troops to Teacher Coordinator further outlines the effort to inform Maine Superintendents and Principals about this resource as you consider your staffing needs.

If you have questions or if we can assist you further, please contact the Certification Office at 207-624-6603.
