Tami Sal, Middle/Upper School Hebrew teacher

 

I was born in Petah Tikva, Israel. I served in the IDF Intelligence unit.  In 1998 I began my teaching career as a general studies teacher in an elementary school in Jerusalem. After moving to the states, I was certified in the Neta and the Tal Am programs for teaching Hebrew as a second language. I taught Hebrew as a second language to new immigrants in Israel and  to students in all grades here in the US.

As a Hebrew teacher, I believe in teaching about Israel, and the Israeli culture through the Hebrew language. I want my students to feel confident and comfortable using reading, writing, conversing and listening skills in Hebrew. I am excited when my students enjoy a modern Hebrew song, when they act out a short conversation with passion, or even just when I know that they are happy and ready to learn. 

This year will be my third year at HBHA, and I am happy to be a part of this great family.  I have three kids. My eldest son graduated HBHA last year, My middle son has two more years in High School, and my daughter is starting Middle School this year.
