    My Story

    Hello, my name is Yris Bilia. I was born in Israel and served as a Lieutenant and air-traffic controller in the IDF. I hold a BA in Psychology and Philosophy from Haifa University and then moved to NY where I live in Manhattan with my husband and our four children. My background is in advertising as a TV producer with some acting, and I currently teach Hebrew in Elementary and Middle school. I am passionate about travel and have visited over 30 countries around the world. I love learning about the nature, history, and customs of the places I explore and enjoy their adventurous side. I create an exciting environment in my classes where students can see themselves as global citizens and independent learners with an open mind to explore and understand the world around them.

    הסיפור שלי

    שלום, שמי איריס ביליה נולדתי בישראל ושרתתי כקצינת בקרה אווירית בצה”ל. למדתי לתואר ראשון בפסיכולוגיה ופילוסופיה באוניברסיטת חיפה ומשם עברתי לניו יורק. אני מתגוררת במנהטן עם בן זוגי וארבעת ילדיי. עסקתי שנים בפרסום כמפיקת פרסומות, יש לי רקע במשחק ובשנים האחרונות אני מלמדת עברית לגילאי יסודי וחטיבת ביניים. יש לי תשוקה עזה לטיולים וביקרתי במעל ל-30 מדינות ברחבי העולם. אני אוהבת לחקור את המקום בו אני מבקרת, ללמוד על ההסטוריה, מנהגים ואוצרות הטבע ולהנות מהחוויות שיש למדינה להציע. השיעורים שלי הם חוויתיים ומסייעים לתלמידים לראות את עצמם כאזרחי העולם הגדול, עם יכולת ללמוד ולחקור באופן עצמאי, עם ראש פתוח להבין ולגלות את העולם סביבם.
