Ms. I Named “Teacher Of The Week”

BCC News – Eric Whitacre

Congratulations to Chief Program Officer, Ms. I who was named "Teacher Of The Week" by Eric Whitacre!

"Irene Idicheria is a selfless, compassionate leader in the Boston Children’s Chorus community. Through a time of significant organizational change in BCC's leadership, through the call to action with Black Lives Matter, and shifting our programming and operations during a global pandemic (each of these things colliding in March 2020), Irene has led our team with empathy, fearlessness, and complete humility. Irene stepped up for our community at a time of great division and heartbreak. She worked tirelessly making phone calls to every student and family--making sure every voice was heard and expertly bringing those voices together in unity. She has stood up with and for her staff through all these trials and always puts others above herself. Through all of these outside trials, Irene has continued to be a beacon of hope and light to her students in the classroom. She makes sure that each child is valued and welcomed."
