💙 Matt C. is a Cambridge native and Morse School alumni! He has also been a Morse parent for - carry the one - too many years to count. He has 2 kids who both started at Morse in preschool; one is currently in 7th grade at PAUS and the other in 4th grade. 

💛 Nuria JC has been a Morse parent for 6 years. Born and raised in Spain, she was unfamiliar with the public school system in the US at first, but she has learned a lot and is getting tons of support from the community. Her 7th grader is a PAUS and she has a 3rd grader at Morse.

💙 Shannon F. has two kids - one in 8th grade at PAUS and one in 10th grade at CRLS. She was also President of FMS for 3 years and has been Chair at PAFA (Putnam Ave Family Association) for the last 3 years. We are grateful to have Shannon join our panel as a parent alumni to provide a glimpse of our future at CPS!


We are fortunate to have Angela R. as our moderator. She has been a Morse parent for 3 years, and has lived in Cambridge with her family for 12 years. She has 3 kids at Morse - 2nd grade, 1st grade, and special start. When she's not parenting, Angela is a leadership and team effectiveness coach/consultant. She also spent 12 years as an HR business partner in biotech. The perfect choice to lead this discussion!
