I would certainly recommend SOS to graduates that I meet. There is a supportive community aspect to their method of operations that can make a big difference for teachers that are just starting out.

Adam Haack

The fact that SOS Teacher Agency call you regarding jobs which is a nice personal touch rather than an app or text which although technology is wonderful, it’s not warm and friendly like a phones from an SOS staff member.
