EPI services public, independent, and charter schools in the US. Many of the schools we work with are brand new to hosting international educators, and we go out of our way to prepare every school with the tools they need to host the teacher and provide an authentic cultural exchange to their students.
Our teachers are experienced and adventurous professionals who come to the US to experience our culture and impact the lives of your students. Our teachers help your students experience the world without leaving the classroom.
Our application process is competitive and attracts the top talent in education from across the globe! We recruit throughout the year to find the best teachers in all subject areas and grade levels.
Our recruitment team is dedicated to identifying teachers who will be successful in your school and community. Your school can request to view our teachers at any time. With adequate notice, we can recruit the right teachers to fit your education plan.
Our teachers help provide students with an advantage in a global economy. Our standards ensure that students at our partnered schools receive a quality education that prepares them for the demands of college.
All Subjects and Grade Levels
We place teachers of all subjects in K-12 grade levels, including critical need subjects such as:
English as a Second Language (ESL)
Special Education (SPED)
World Languages and Immersion
We Do Our Homework
Our team uses a rigorous and consistent screening and interview process to assess each teacher. In addition, each teacher must meet the stringent requirements of the US Department of State to obtain a J-1 visa. Careful attention is paid to assessing our teachers' ability to perform in the classroom and adapt to a new culture.
Our teachers have a credential evaluation from an agency approved by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES), as required for licensure. You can view our vetted teachers when you log into your EPI account.
