I have created a positive, thriving, dynamic, ever-changing learning environment for the students in my Upper Elementary Hebrew Language Program (Ivrit B’Ivrit) at Perelman Jewish Day School. Children are encouraged to take risks to converse exclusively in Hebrew. As this is a total immersion program, Hebrew eventually becomes an everyday spoken language—as natural to the students as the English language.
