Honoring NYCID's YABC Co-Director, Joann Calabro

Joann Calabro, Assistant Principal, Tottenville High School and Program Administrator of the Young Adult Borough Center works hand-in-hand with Michael DeVito, NYCID's YABC Director. Together they lead a team of educators and youth development staff who make it possible for young people to turn their lives around.

The NY Center took great pride in honoring Ms Calabro at our Celebrating Partnerships Fundraising Auction on June 9th.

Mrs. Calabro’s professional career began almost 19 years ago as a teacher of English Literature at Port Richmond High School.  During her nine years at Port Richmond, she wore many hats.  In addition to teaching English, Mrs. Calabro spent time as a grade advisor, the College Advisor and the Literary Magazine Advisor.

She spent one year at the Michael J. Petrides High School teaching English and helping to set up the fledgling high school.

In 2001 Mrs. Calabro became the Assistant Principal of Guidance at Sheepshead Bay High School in Brooklyn.

She returned to her professional roots in 2005 when she took on the position of Assistant Principal, Program Administrator of the Staten Island Young Adult Borough Center.
