Madame Anne DeClara has joined the Kehila family, bringing her 33 years of French immersion teaching experience with the Hamilton-Wentworth Board. Anne received her Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto and also has her Principal's qualification from Brock University.
Studies have shown that a multilingual brain is nimbler, quicker and better able to deal with ambiguities. Children in particular have all the capacities necessary to master two or more languages at the same time – already evident in countries such as Switzerland and Belgium where speaking several languages is the norm.
The added bonus is Kehila's integrated curriculum, where studies traditionally taught separately and in isolation are brought together encouraging students make connections and build knowledge. Learning becomes much more engaging and children begin to think critically.
