The Florida Department of Education is proud to provide opportunities for members of the United States Armed Forces, veterans and their spouses to become part of our team working hand in hand to improve Florida’s education system for students of all backgrounds and abilities. Florida hosts the 5th largest population of active duty personnel and reserve members in the five military armed services and is home to over 1.5 million veterans.
The Florida Department of Education commits to recruitment of military personnel, veterans and their spouses to continue their service by teaching and leading in Florida schools.
