Monique Brusca receives Yale Distinguished Music Educator Award
Ms. Monique Brusca, teacher at Columbus Middle School, has been selected to receive the Yale Distinguished Music Educator Award at the 2017 Symposium on Music in School this summer at Yale University. The focus at this year's Symposium is music-making in America's city schools, and the Yale School of Music has partnered with the National Association of Music Educators and VH1 Save the Music Foundation to identify educators who exemplify the qualities of successful music educators in urban districts. Ms Brusca has been selected as a teacher who is remarkable both for her visionary approach to music education in a city school district, as well as her efforts to truly ‘make a difference’ in the lives of students and families.
