The Burbank Unified School District’s vocal music programs need to

be commended for their superior quality.

We have several extremely gifted and talented music teachers in

our district who provide excellent music education to our children. I

hope our superintendent and the Burbank school board will continue to

provide our children with quality music teachers so that the vocal

music programs continue to thrive.

My children have had the fortunate experience of having Pam

Pouliot, Michelle Jensen, Lydia Shin and Brett Carroll. Thanks also

to Burbank High School principal Leslie DeRoos for listening to

parents and their concerns last year and then hiring a new and

extremely qualified vocal music teacher.

These programs help to build confidence and self-esteem in kids,

as well as teach them to work in groups and to strive to be their

personal best. My son’s participation in Burbank’s first-rate vocal

music programs gave him the self-assurance and skills to be a

contender on “American Idol.”

Thank you to the Burbank Unified School District and Michelle

Jensen.
