Information for Educators

Teaching Staff

We believe the best conceived plans need exceptional leaders to execute them.

Our unique learning environment requires that teachers possess extensive knowledge in their subject area and excel in the use of contemporary teaching methods. It has taken over 20 years of travelling and teaching to summon together the finest teachers for our programs. Together, the Upper Grand District School Board with MEI, select staff based on their academic knowledge, travel experience, and most importantly their passion for teaching young adults.

As a testament to how the MEI experience impacts students, many of our alumni return as faculty members after completing their university degrees. They return, wanting to give back what they received as students. Students and parents will have an opportunity to meet the staff and teachers during online predeparture sessions held before each trip begins.
