Four NHPS Grads Interning at Morse Summer Music Academy

Four recent New Haven Public School graduates are teacher interns this summer at the Morse Summer Music Academy. Katherine Roque, Jocelyn Hernandez, Jesus Cortes-Sanchez, and Richard Romero all graduated from the Morse Academy and are now interns this summer where they will earn a small stipend by teaching younger students.  In the past, the Morse Summer Music Academy has been taught by graduate students at the Yale school of Music and New Haven Public School teachers; however, Michael Yaffe, the Yale School of Music's Associate Dean, decided that these four students had proven maturity and musical expertise.  He believed that the summer program would benefit from their talent and energy and the four interns would gain experience teaching.  All four students are New Haven Promise Scholars, and are looking forward to pursuing a degree in music education in the fall.
