Beyond NDA. . . Jamie Danen Leads Conferences for US Holocaust Museum


“I feel like I teach next door to a star!” said Mrs. Brown when listening to NDA teacher Jamie Danen’s life story. 

Mrs. Danen started her journey at DePere High School where she became interested in journalism. She first attended UW-Madison studying journalism before moving to UWGB. 

One thing she loves to do is learn and help others. One summer after working at a YMCA summer camp, she realized her real calling was to be a teacher, so she switched her major to English. 

Mrs. Danen has always had a passion for journalism, though, as she was a writer/editor for a newspaper at UW Madison and a local paper here in Green Bay. 

Since college, she has taught at two schools before coming to NDA.

Mrs. Danen also works with the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, leading conferences for teachers to learn how to best teach about the Holocaust to their students. 

She became interested in the Holocaust because her grandfather was among the first groups that went into the camps to release the Jews. 

“I’ve met some of my best friends, I’ve met people who span many types of jobs, and I’ve met so many people with transformative experiences,” said Mrs. Danen when talking about her involvement with the Holocaust Museum. 

“She is one of the best speakers I’ve ever heard,” said Mrs. Brown in reference to Mrs. Danen’s leadership session for this year’s teacher in-service.

In a closing statement, Mrs. Danen told the Journalism I class that “I’ve been really lucky with the people that I work with and the difference I’ve been able to make.”
