Why Choose FACES?
Teaching in the United States can be a good experience--working with FACES can make it a great one.
We support our teachers
We’re teachers, too. So, we know how important it is to have support both in and out of the classroom. That’s why we work with you to help get you certified to teach in South Carolina and make sure you have the tools and skills you need to be successful in your classroom. And since our office is only a few hours’ drive from all the schools we work with, it’s easy for us to respond quickly if you ever have a problem.
We want you to have a great experience outside the classroom, too. So we help you meet and network with other FACES teachers near you, help you buy an automobile, and give you a stipend to travel home during the summer holiday to visit friends and family.
Live in South Carolina
You’ll be living and working in South Carolina—and it’s a pretty great place to be. The state’s known for its friendly people, good weather, and delicious food. While you’re here you’ll have the chance to try some of the dishes we’re famous for, like barbecue, shrimp and grits, and sweet tea.
While you’re here, you’ll also notice that people in our state love getting outside. You’ll find a lot of your fellow teachers talking about trips to the mountains, days at the beach, and walks through local parks. If you don’t like the outdoors, South Carolina is also full of great cultural opportunities. We partner with the South Carolina Philharmonic, located in our state’s capital, and all of our teachers get free tickets to attend a concert. Here are some great resources for exploring South Carolina:
- South Carolina's Information Highway
- Discover South Carolina
- South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism
When you’re ready to start exploring the rest of the country, our location on the East Coast means it’s not hard to visit other states and get to some great attractions like Disney World and New York City.
Teaching in South Carolina can be a fulfilling and exciting experience in itself. But as a FACES teacher you’ll also get some great benefits to help make sure you have the best experience possible.
- Complimentary tickets to South Carolina Philharmonic concerts.
- Opportunities to attend two FACES-sponsored parties throughout the year.
