Janine D’Amico attended State University of New York at Old Westbury where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Social Studies Adolescent Education and History. Before coming to UA Maker, she taught 9th and 10th grade Global History in Brooklyn, NY. Ms. D’Amico believes that Social Studies education should go much further beyond simply recalling dates and events. She wants her students to be able to make connections between historical and current events, and continually question everything they believe they know about the world.
In her spare time, Janine enjoys practicing yoga, reading, watching baseball and football, and spending time with her family (including her french bulldog, Hamilton)!
