Yael (she/her) is a Bay Area native and is excited to be returning after receiving her masters in Human Development and Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Before that, she taught Grade 1 for many years at Keys School in Palo Alto and received her B.A from the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!).
Yael is passionate about elementary education and loves continuing to expand her knowledge. She values equity and inclusion, social-emotional learning, and building strong relationships in her classroom. In her spare time, Yael loves to travel around the world, notice cute dogs on the street, hike in the redwoods, and hunt for the best burritos in San Francisco. She is absolutely thrilled to be joining the Hamlin community!
