MyCAA and American College

It is military appreciation month and I have been speaking with some of our great military veterans and spouses who have become teachers. Regardless of your political leanings, you should know that we have some incredible programs to help our veterans and their families achieve their educational and career goals.

MyCAA is one of these programs which pays $6,000 to help military spouses find career and education training in portable careers that can help them when the move all over the country. We have three military spouses working on our Master's in Education through MyCAA and it is just wonderful to talk with them.

Next up is to figure out the Post 9-11 GI Bill for a veteran in Connecticut who is serving his country again - this time in the classroom who wants a master's from American College of Education. Makes my job a lot more satisfying today.
