Hi!
My name is Miss Patrizia. I began working at Kazelfa as a teacher and am now a supervisor. I believe that in order to learn, children need to be engaged and interested and above all they need to have fun! In my role as supervisor, I interact with children, parents, and teachers to ensure that everything runs smoothly and to facilitate this inclusive and fun environment for children to learn English.

Hi!
My name is Miss. Lina Feudale and I teach the 7-8 year old groups for Kazelfa.

I also believe that children learn best when they are having fun at the same time!

Hello!
My name is Miss. Sarah Reale and I teach the 9-12 year old groups for Kazelfa. I believe that students are most engaged when they are interested in the subjects they are studying. For that reason, I think Kazelfa’s fun, open and relevant course structure is especially conducive to effective and long-lasting learning. I think that kids can best develop their skills when they are in an environment that makes them feel comfortable to share when they do and do not understand a concept. I strive to create this environment in my classroom. I am excited for my students and I to explore different topics together and really broaden our knowledge.

Hello!
My name is Miss Ellen and I teach the 7-8 year old groups in the South Shore. I believe that children learn best in an engaging environment, where they can experience hands on activities that fully immerse them in the material that they are learning. This is especially important when taking on the task of learning a new language. Learning English can help children succeed in life and open many new doors for them. Thus it is important for children to fully enjoy and understand what they are learning. Through fun activities, my classroom will focus on giving students a valuable, creative and fun, learning experience that will increase their confidence in English communication.

Hi!
My name is Miss Alysia and I teach the 3-4 year old groups for Kazelfa at Laval. I believe that children learn best by being active participants in their learning, by having fun, and being presented with different learning opportunities to tackle the learning styles of each of the different children. This is why I make sure that our class involves music, technology, arts and crafts, and games. My goal is to help my students become comfortable learning a second language and to encourage them to speak English!

AmandaAmanda

Hi
My name is Miss Amanda and I teach the 5-6 year olds at Kazelfa. I strongly believe that students learn the best when they are engaged in the material they are learning. Therefore, our job as teachers is to make learning as fun as possible by making it hands on. By learning through songs, videos, and by taking part in educational games and activities, our students are doing much more than just learning a new language. They are also learning how to express themselves and how to communicate appropriately. By giving our students the knowledge to learn a second or third language, we are opening doors for them. I have a passion for teaching and for learning. I will therefore make every teaching experience a fun and positive one for your child! We will learn English the fun way!

TamaraTamara

Hello
My name is Tamara Campilii. I am teaching the 3-4 year old group and 7-8 year old group for Kazelfa on Sundays. I believe it is important for students to be given the opportunity to interact with the English language through a variety of amusing activities that are both interactive and communicative, immersing them in the language in an enjoyable way. My goal is to make the English language more accessible to the students by modeling and demonstrating the learning through the use of actions, gestures, non-linguistic cues and authentic visual representations of newly learnt concepts. Learning a new language can be an intimidating and an overwhelming experience at times, therefore, it is important to create a safe and supportive classroom environment where students will feel comfortable and confident enough to want to converse in the English language with their peers.

Hello
My name is Miss Samantha and I am a very hard working and devoted teacher! I have a degree in Kindergarten and elementary education from McGill University. I am very happy to be teaching the 9-12 year olds at Rosemount on Saturdays! I believe in teaching students to grasp information by providing a fun and interactive teaching approach. Students are most engaged when a lesson is done in a unique way. This being said, I have very creative ways to incorporate technology and art to make learning more engaging for the students. I also pay very close attention to my students to insure that they receive the help that they deserve. I understand that learning English as a second language can be difficult but my goal is to make all my students learn and remember my class for being fun. Students will be learning various new words and using these words in challenging sentences by participating in games and hands on activities. I am confident that my class will motivate my students to learn and I hope they will be excited to come back every week!

Hi
My name is Miss Olivia Mancini and I teach Kazelfa’s 7-8 year old group at the Laval location. I am very excited to be joining the Kazelfa team, as my approach to teaching and my philosophy of education is very similar to what is practiced here at schools. I am a strong advocate for motivating my students to learn and engaging them in interesting activities in order to heighten their curiosity. This is made possible as Kazlefa offers students a well-structured course load, which I believe is key in fostering children to become life long learners. I am also a strong believer in a positive classroom environment where students feel they are in a safe space and feel conformable participating in the activities. As we learn through activities, crafts, songs and play the students and I will make this journey as memorable and exciting as possible!

I have been working with children for many years and it has always been my dream to teach, especially a new language to young minds. I believe in leading a class with a lot of motivation and enthusiasm for the subject. That is why I focus on creating lessons that students can relate to. There is nothing more encouraging for a teacher than to see her students progress. I will always devote myself to the students and their goals. As for myself, I hope to build great relationships with my students so that they are comfortable enough to practice and participate in their second language classroom!
