    My Story

    My name is Rivka. I grew up in the North of Israel, and I am currently living in Carmel, New York. I studied at Rubin Academy of Music and Dance in Jerusalem and at Lehman College CUNY in the Bronx. I have four daughters and my oldest one is in the Israeli Army. I have been teaching for the last 20 years, both in Israel and in the USA. I have experience teaching in Elementary and Middle School.  Learning any language is a tool for you to gain access to the world and its people in some way.  I believe students should be actively involved in their own learning as I aim to be merely a facilitator that allows discovery and curiosity to take place to learn about the Hebrew language and Israel.  When I am not teaching, I am interested in reading, cooking and dancing. Apart from that, I am always on a quest to meet new people and learn about their language and culture.

    הסיפור שלי

    שלום, שמי רבקה. גדלתי בצפון ישראל וכיום אני גרה בכרמל, ניו יורק. למדתי באקדמיה למוסיקה ולמחול על שם רובין בירושלים ובמכללת להימן CUNY בברונקס. יש לי 4 בנות והבת הבכורה שלי בצבא הישראלי. אני מלמדת מזה 20 שנה גם בישראל וגם בארה”ב. יש לי ניסיון בהוראת השפה העברית ולימודי ישראל בבתי הספר היסודיים ובתיכון.

    אני מאמינה שלימוד כל שפה הוא כלי לקבל גישה לעולם ולאנשיו בדרך כלשהי ושהתלמידים צריכים להיות מעורבים באופן פעיל בלמידה שלהם. התפקיד שלי הוא להנחות את תלמידיי ולאפשר להם גילוי וסקרנות ללמוד עוד על ישראל והשפה העברית.
