What Our Teachers Say

“MEF IS is special thanks to the interculturalism and the professional attitude of all of the members in this community. What I love about the school is the collaborative work ambiance, the ratio (which permits us the teacher to differentiate according to the students needs) and to be listened to as a professional.”

Laura Montes, Spanish Teacher

“MEF IS is a special place to work because we are one big family. Whether we are teachers, office staff or cleaning staff; we all care for one another. We try our best to celebrate the successes in our lives: professionally, academically and personally. We respect each other’s cultures, religions, and personalities. We support each other during good times and bad and would do anything to make sure we feel welcomed, loved and included in our community. Because the staff are obviously happy here, which creates our positive community, the students also are comfortable because they feel accepted and cared about.”

Sandi Klein, Learning Support Teacher


“It is a school that has a commitment to quality education and the class sizes are small. The school has a great culture that encourages students to focus on academics. I love the city and working with my colleagues as everyone is friendly and supportive.”

Ted Norman, History Teacher
