Teacher

Yael Mermelstein
Yael Mermelstein
Yael Mermelstein is the author of CAMP MAH-TOVU (Penguin Workshop), IZZY THE WHIZ AND PASSOVER McCLEAN (Kar-Ben/Lerner) and more than a dozen other books for children and adults, published by boutique Jewish publishing houses. She works as the associate editor at Binah Bunch children’s magazine, where she also publishes weekly stories for children and teens. In her previous life, she earned her MS in secondary education and spent a decade teaching teens—until she decided she’d much rather tell them stories than make them sit in chairs. Yael lives in Israel with her husband and seven exceedingly active children—who provide ample fodder for the next dozen books she intends to write.
