About Joana

About Joana
Hi! My name is Joana, and I'm originally from New Jersey. My parents are from Portugal, so I grew up speaking Portuguese and eating way too much food. I love history, reading, cooking, writing, and traveling, which led me to an opportunity to live in Paris twice! I went to school to become a historian, and I love helping students to find something that interests them in the past to bring back to their own communities.

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
Over the last eight years, I taught hundreds of middle and high school students in New York City and New Jersey about the Holocaust both in schools and at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in downtown Manhattan. I am currently the Manager of Museum Internships at the Museum, where I work with high school, college, and graduate students. I teach high school students about the Holocaust, Jewish heritage, writing, and historical thinking through primary source work. I take them on field trips to various museums throughout the city! I've also served...

Work Experience
Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, Manager of Museum Internships
2018 - Present
My first role at the Museum was working with the Speakers Bureau, where I worked with about 30 Holocaust survivors who spoke to thousands of students about their experiences. In my current role as Manager of Museum Internships, I manage two key programs: the High School Apprenticeship Program and the Holocaust Educator Internship. I work with high school, college, and graduate students in learning more about the Holocaust and engaging in the museum field.
