Kara Bowles

Principal, Bluewater District School Board, Ontario

Kara Bowles (@bowlkar) loves to help change mindsets! Throughout her 25 year career she has had many opportunities to work with French Immersion teachers, principals and FSL stakeholders from across Ontario in order to strengthen FSL programming in Ontario.

As a principal from Bluewater District School Board in Ontario, her perspective stays rooted in practical implementation tips that work in classrooms and schools. Being part of provincial initiatives has allowed her to develop a broad knowledge base in the CEFR, FSL research and the importance of stakeholder investment. She has presented workshops across Ontario for ACPI, OMLTA and the Ontario Principal Council (OPC). Her online presence can be found through her Ed Talk “Principal to Principal”. Currently she is teaching a learning module for OPC called ‘Leading the French Immersion Program” . Kara looks forward to working with principals from across Canada to ensure the best possible outcomes for FSL learners.
