Here are some quotes from some of my wonderful  students

Hi there, Ms. Noreen!

I think that this alumni page is such a wonderful idea. I have enjoyed reading about all of the awesome things my fellow WPS alumni have been up to!

I am proud to say that I am still very involved with music! I find time every now and then to stop by the piano labs in the music building on campus at BC and spend an hour or two just playing. I’m in one of nine a cappella groups on campus, The BC Dynamics. We are celebrating our 15th anniversary as a group this fall! (Check us out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Yw-5HEokkA&feature=c4-overview&list=UUrsiAceCOR72l7VOkf-FFyQ).

When I’m not singing or playing the piano, I am a mentor through the Big Brother Big Sister of Massachusetts Bay program and am involved in a number of sustainability focused initiatives. I have an on campus job at the Boston College Office of Sustainability too!

I’m a junior at BC pursuing a degree in Communication with a minor in Environmental Studies and am looking forward to spending my next semester in Madrid, Spain.
— Cheers, A.J.

Hi Ms. Noreen,
Just wanted to drop a line and say Hi! I am finishing my second year at UC Berkeley and really love life in NORCAL! This summer I will be at Rutgers University for 10 weeks in the lab conducting experiments and broadening my knowledge in the Neurosciences. Hope you,Mr. Kevin (Krav Maga!) and the kids are well! Thanks always for my music education, it has made a tremendous difference in my life!
