Ms. Kris D'Amico
Kris D'Amico, a Bay Area native, discovered her passion for teaching at a young age while working at a neighbor's preschool. She pursued her dream of becoming an elementary school teacher by attending Sonoma State University. However, when she enrolled in courses like "The History of Math," Calculus, and Cryptography, she discovered a fascination with the secrets, challenges, and puzzles of the mathematical world. Ms. D’Amico changed her path, enrolling in Saint Mary's College of California as a Secondary Math candidate, graduating with honors in 2016. After teaching in China's Fujian Province for two years, Ms. D’Amico is thrilled to return to California and share her passion for mathematics with the students of NTHS. Her experience in China allowed her to immerse herself in a different culture, adapt her teaching methods to a diverse student population, and gain a broader perspective on education. Besides teaching, she loves traveling and playing board games and video games with friends.
