Operation Opportunity Knocks

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”  Alexander Graham Bell

Girl with a soccer ball and an appleFor 120 years Texas A&M University-Commerce (formerly East Texas State University) has prepared public school teachers.  Now that our public schools are facing unprecedented budget reductions and many teachers may lose their jobs, we feel we must take a leadership role in assisting our current and former students.  This website has been created to provide a single source portal to opportunities for related careers, opportunities for earning extra income, and opportunities for delaying the payment of loans that have been incurred in pursuing degrees and/or teacher certifications.
