A Few Words About Me
Language is the key to culture. Carmel has three toddlers and the thing that fascinates her most as a Hebrew teacher is watching them acquire a new language. The natural way in which they use complex Hebrew grammar combined with the mistakes that they make, shine a new light on the Hebrew language. Carmel is greatly honored to teach Hebrew and guide students through the maze that is this ancient-modern language.
Carmel has a BA in History from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a teaching certificate for teaching Hebrew as a foreign language, which she received from the Rothberg School at the Hebrew University.
During her military service, Carmel was a commander of immigrant soldiers and taught them Hebrew and Zionism. She was later responsible for developing the content and training commanders. Carmel taught in the summer Ulpan program of the Rothberg School and created an experiential summer Ulpan for Jewish youth from Latin America, a role which included writing content, recruiting and training teachers, and teaching. She also teaches Ulpan in a program for American English teachers through the Israel Experience. She has been teaching at the Israel Institute of Biblical Studies since 2013.
