Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Yael Zetouni
Hi! My name is Yael Zetouni and I teach Hebrew at Deerfield High School (levels 4 and 5 Honors). I grew up in Switzerland, moved to Israel to study at the university, and have been residing in Chicago for the past several years with my husband and three children (two graduates of DHS and one future student there). I attained a BA in Linguistics and Literature at Tel Aviv University, then continued on to get an MA in Education with a teaching degree from there. I have taught many ages throughout my career, but I am excited to be back teaching at the high school level where I first started.
With my love of Hebrew and passion for teaching, I am confident that my students will gain a deepened appreciation for the Hebrew language. I accomplish this by integrating focus on Israeli culture into the course along with the language itself to give my students a more holistic view of modern Hebrew.
