My wife is a K-12 certified teacher. With a masters degree in education, fluent in Spanish and certified as an ESL.

I was offered a GS-12 position in Europe and we have been back stateside for exactly two years.

If she got hired as a teacher by DODEA, would we both still be subject to the five year rule?

When I was in Germany last, we had heard of the spouse of a GS (who was getting LQA) getting hired by DODEA. DODEA then started paying LQA to the teacher, and the garrison dropped paying LQA to the regular GS employee.

Is this still a thing?

Yes I know how hard it is for a teacher to get hired by DODEA before the naysayers drop that line in there! Thank you!

Also I would be taking a downgrade so she could have a career.

Yes, if she is a local hire then she will not get LQA at all.

If she got hired as a FT teacher, she would not be, you would.

Note - teachers in dodea refer to full time teachers. They have their own pathway to hire so almost everything you find on usajobs won't be exempt; even if they work full time (ie 40 hours a week), they are not full time teachers.
