  • Teacher pursuing 09S

    I posted on these forums about 2 years ago when I was seriously considering joining the NG and pursuing the 09S option. A couple other teachers stepped out of the woodwork and rather than revive that thread that was mainly about me and my questions, I thought I'd open this up for any other teachers out there who have enlisted 09S. I know my biggest concerns have to do with the reaction of my employer, the training schedule, and the work load as an officer between drill (especially when paired with teaching a core subject class and coaching). I'm currently 29 years old and have wanted to serve in the military for over a decade and finally hope to make it a reality. I've contacted a recruiter (left two messages over two days) and hope to get the ball rolling soon.

    Anyway, as stated I would love to hear any experience from teachers who serve in the Guard, whether as an officer or enlisted.

              Thanks. I put BOLC off for nearly 2 years which pushed me back 6 extra months, but it's good now. Now off to Afghanistan!
