Lee M. is a school principal on the Burin Peninsula along the southern coast of Newfoundland. He teaches English language and literature and first travelled with EF in 2005. He is a firm believer that travelling is best when it is a shared experience whether that be an individual traveller seeking to immerse in the culture of the locals or a teacher leading a group of wide-eyed students.
Amy P. is 16 years old, and she lives in the small town of Northern Arm, located in central Newfoundland. This Grade 11 student spends her spare time enjoying hockey, softball, photography, and of course, travelling. This spring, Amy travelled to London, Paris, and Rome with EF Tours on the experience of a lifetime. She believes it’s important for young Canadians to travel because travelling is a “constant learning experience which keeps you on your toes, and allows you to be exposed to new things, which is something that I believe everyone needs in life.”
Jessica K. is an EF Territory Manager for the region of Newfoundland and Labrador. She was raised in a small town, near Georgian Bay, Ontario but her roots are from Placentia, Newfoundland. When she isn’t helping Group Leaders share their passion for travel, you can find her running, practicing and teaching yoga, cooking, writing and adventuring. She believes that everyone should travel wherever they can and that travel colours your life with experiences that help you become a more self-aware, global and enriched citizen.
Jonathan V. is a EF Territory Manager in Saskatchewan and the Territories. A Newfoundlander to the core, he has lived in Italy and Australia – far from his native land. When he isn’t helping Group Leaders or cracking jokes, you can find him golfing, running, reading and playing video games. Having spent summers in Southeast Asia, Europe and beyond, he shares his passion for travel with teachers and colleagues alike. He believes that everyone needs to get outside their comfort zone and experience new cultures, and by doing that you will become a true global citizen!
