Teacher Testimonials

EPI has afforded me the opportunity to experience life as a teacher geographically and culturally. It is one thing to hear and read about aspects of education in another country but to have a first hand experience is great. I recently arrived to North Carolina, but so far, my perspectives on teaching have positively changed. I especially, appreciate the staff of EPI for their hard work and dedication to each EPI teacher. Thank you EPI.

Kindergarten Elementary Teacher from Jamaica

EPI has guided me from the time I contacted them to convey my interest to the program until now that I am already in the United States. They are with me every step of the way. They have a very professional, friendly and approachable staff that you can always contact 24/7. They consider every EPI teacher their own family. I am currently enjoying my job as a Science teacher at the same time sharing Philippine culture with my students and colleagues who are very interested to know my country. Everyone in South Carolina, from the school, to the district office and to every offices and places I go, they are very friendly and accommodating. I cannot ask for more but am very grateful to EPI for giving me the chance to experience this once in a lifetime opportunity. Keep it up EPI, hold on to your ideals!
