Plus, ROTC offers monthly stipends up to $420 per month and additional program provided merit and need based incentives for cadets in good standing. Additionally, a commission as an Army officer in either the Army National Guard or Army Reserves greatly helps supplement a teacher’s monthly salary after college. Finally, the leadership skills you will learn in Army ROTC also complement the teaching skills you will use when developing lesson plans and managing your classroom. We hope you will consider joining our program, and we encourage you to enroll in one of our Army ROTC - MSL courses. Mr. Myron McWashington is available to answer any questions you may have.
