Siegfried was already taking the online classes he needed to become certified as a teacher before IBM introduced its Transition to Teaching Program in 2006. The company offers a $15,000 stipend to qualified employees to offset educational costs. "It was just one of those good fortune things," Siegfried says.

"My impression is that it is the right thing to do to help the country."
