Meet Cohort 5 of the GATE Program

Introducing Cohort 5 of the Greenville Alternative Teacher Education (GATE) program!

This cohort of 23 first-year teachers – the program’s largest cohort yet – is teaching math, science, English, social studies, and world languages across middle and secondary schools in Greenville County. We recognize their commitment to public education in a year of so much uncertainty, and ​we ​appreciate their​ dedication to students through it all!

In partnership with Greenville County Schools, the GATE program is the first district-based, job-embedded certification program in South Carolina. Learn more at or attend a virtual information session at
