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!
