The Commonwealth of Kentucky, one of the most beautiful states in the country, is a place where you can enjoy our
diverse landscapes, rich history, and cultural events. We are a veteran-friendly state that does not tax retired
military pay or social security. If qualified, Kentucky offers Option 5, which is an expedited method of teacher
certification for veterans with a bachelor’s degree in a certification area. The average Kentucky teacher’s salary
is just under $50,000 annually and the Kentucky Teachers Retirement System is still one of the best in the country.
The time is right for you to start a teaching career in Kentucky. So answer the call to serve again, and join us
in educating the minds of Kentucky’s children.
