Why EF Education First?
EF is the World Leader in International Education.

My approach
to safety
My 6-to-1 chaperone ratio
(for every six students there
is one adult chaperone)
My rules are the same as the
AHS rules. I will treat each
child like my own.
If a traveler (student or adult)
violates my rules, I have the
right to send them home from
tour at the parents’ expense.
