My name is Mrs. Jen Bourbonais and I am so excited to be teaching your children this year at OES! I have a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Union University in Jackson, TN and a Master of Music in Choral Conducting from the University of Mississippi. This is my eleventh year of teaching at the elementary level (my 6th year at OES) and I previously taught at Lafayette Elementary School in Oxford, Mississippi and Lewisburg Primary School in Olive Branch, MS. I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri (Go Cardinals!) and I have a 7 year old little boy who is my sunshine, a newborn baby girl, and a sweet husband I've had the privilege of being married to for over 2 years!
