Jean English fell in love with music in sixth grade. She is the director of the only strings instrument program in Calcasieu Parish Schools at Oak Park Middle School. She also teaches chorus at T.H. Watkins Elementary. And that's not all, English is the conductor of the Bulber Youth Orchestra at McNeese. English finds time to play with both the Lake Charles symphony and the Lake Charles Community Band, and she also volunteers for the District High School Honor Chorus concerts. English has made music her life and now this Class Act is instilling her love of music into generations of children.
