I have been a teacher for 30 years, working in elementary schools as a homeroom teacher, an L1 Hebrew teacher, and an English teacher. I was vice-principal for over ten years and Head of Pedagogy at the school. For over 20 years, I have coached teachers in schools and taught in-service courses.

At Oranim I lead the one-year retraining program for English teaching and have taught: “Elementary Didactics for the Pre-Foundation and Foundation Levels”, “Technology Enhanced Language Learning”, and “Dialogue and Thought in Education”, a course which focuses on narrative writing.

In the Faculty of Education, I teach courses on L1 language and literacy at the elementary level and I accompany students in their practicum as a pedagogical advisor.

I believe that learning, at all levels should be an engaging, active and creative process which invites learners into significant dialogue with the course content, other students and the lecturer.

My PhD deals with the professional learning of Israeli teachers and the role of writing in that learning. My research interests include teacher learning, writing, writing pedagogy, literacy, dialogic education and qualitative inquiry,

Dr. Emil Haloun


I have joined the department of English literature at the Oranim Academic College in 2019 and I am very pleased to be part of this mosaic in Galilee which gathers the beautiful diversity of this land. In that spirit, my current research, which focuses on eighteenth and nineteenth-century British and American Poetry, Postmodern Theory and Theology, strives to generate novel theories in literary criticism. It is my aim to explore how the reading and teaching of literature at the academy may bring people together interlacing, , thereby, our professional  vocation with the humane-- and humanitarian-- aspect in this ever-changing yet, unfortunately,  segregated world

I teach a course in English Language Didactics - Junior High and High school for the Academic Retraining program.  I am also a full time English teacher and Educator and have been teaching for the past 28 years.  My field of expertise is vocabulary acquisition in second language learning.  I was involved in creating Band III (A list of lexical items  currently taught at high schools around Israel).  In addition, I am an oriental dance instructor which I incorporate into my teaching from time to time as I am a firm believer that movement helps the learning process and that having a bit of fun in the classroom generates positivity.  I also practice mindfulness every day.

חלום חיי היה להיות גנטיקאית, כשסיימתי את התואר השני בגנטיקה של האדם בפקולטה לרפואה בהדסה עין כרם, התחלתי ללמד (די במקרה) בבית הספר הניסויי בירושלים ונשבתי בקסם.
אחת ההנאות הגדולות שלי היא ללמד! כמורה למדעים, חיפשתי מענה במחקר לסוגיות שהעסיקו אותי בכיתה. כך בחרתי לערוך דוקטורט בתחום הוראת המדעים. השלמתי דוקטורט בטכניון שעסק בלמידה בקבוצות קטנות של תחום האבולוציה בתיכון.
בהמשך, חקרתי בפוסט דוקטורט חשיבה ביקורתית אצל תלמידים (בחיפה) וסטודנטים (באורנים). במהלך חיי המקצועיים, לימדתי והדרכתי מורים בבתי ספר יסודיים ועל יסודיים, הקמתי וניהלתי את תחום החינוך ברמת הנדיב שעסק בחינוך אקולוגי במשך יותר מעשור וניהלתי את תחום המתמטיקה והמדעים בחותם במשך חמש שנים. בחותם הכרתי לעומק את הפריפריה החברתית גאוגרפית בישראל ואת החשיבות הגדולה של החינוך כמשנה מציאות חברתית.
אני מאמינה בלמידה מתמדת ובהתנסויות מרחיבות אופקים, זכיתי להיות עמיתה בבית ספר מנדל למנהיגות חינוכית בירושלים במשך שנתיים ואני ממשיכה ללמוד בתוכנית השונות באמצעות יחידת הבוגרים.
אני רואה חשיבות גדולה בקשר עם העולם היהודי בתפוצות, לכן יצאתי לשליחות קהילתית מטעם הסוכנות היהודית לשלוש שנים. במהלכן ניהלתי את מרכז תכניות ישראל בקהילה היהודית בצפון ניו ג'רסי.
כיום אני ראשת התכנית להוראה ביסודי באורנים- כאן התחלתי את דרכי כמורה. בחינוך היסודי, יש עדיין את החופש לחלום ולהגשים חלומות עם התלמידות והתלמידים, לעצב עתיד טוב יותר לכולנו.
