My name is Shira Bezie. I was born in Ethiopia, but moved to Israel when I was 8 years old. After finishing high school in Israel, I started teaching Hebrew to 4 year-old Ethiopian kids in my community. This experience matured me a lot and helped me grow as a person in many ways. After about 2 years of teaching, I started working in the police force. While working for the police, I Studied and got my Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and gave birth to my first son. After about 10 years, I moved to USA and started working for the Embassy of Israel, and as a result I moved to Rockville, Maryland. After finishing my contract with the Embassy, I had given birth to my beautiful daughter, who not too long ago turned 1 year old! When I heard of this great opportunity to start teaching again, I could not have been more excited. I believe that with the right education, anyone can have a bright exciting future. Seeing the kids develop and grow each day as I teach them new things about the rich and beautiful Hebrew language was a delight for me to observe back then, as I’m sure it will continue to be this year and in the years to come.
