Why North Carolina?

"North Carolina is a wonderful place to build a life and a career and we’d love to welcome you to join our public schools as a respected teacher. Come help us continue our strong tradition of public education while you challenge, empower, and inspire North Carolina’s next generation."
— Governor Roy Cooper

Here are just a few reasons to love North Carolina:

  • Outdoor playground

    With four distinct seasons, beaches, mountains and everything in between, NC has a little something for everyone. You can spend your weekends hiking through the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains, driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway, or walking along the beaches of the Outer Banks.

  • Southern foodie capitol

    NC is the birthplace of the donuts we all know and crave: Krispy Kreme. In fact, NC has a history of producing mouth-watering fast food joints. Bojangles anyone? And of course, the barbeque is on point

  • Affordable lifestyle

    NC is below the national average when it comes to cost of living and ranks high on the list of best places to live in the U.S, making it one of the more affordable and desirable places in the U.S. to live.

North Carolina needs teachers who are committed to empowering and enriching the lives of students. With a majority of districts offering free/reduced meals to ensure students come to school ready to learn, and many districts with a majority of students of color, the need for educators who represent the breadth of backgrounds, experiences and cultures of our students is greater than ever.
