About Mrs. K
Hello! My name is Mrs. Kocurek and I am happy to be part of the Palacios Junior High team! This is my 8th year of teaching Art, my first year teaching Yearbook, and my fourth year with Palacios ISD. I want to let you know a little about me.
I was born and raised in Van Vleck, TX and I grew up the youngest of 6! When I was 14 my parents adopted my niece and nephew so I now have 4 sisters and 3 brothers. After graduating from Van Vleck High School, I attended 2 smaller colleges before going to Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. I majored in Studio Art with All-Level Teaching Certification and couldn't wait to graduate and start teaching!
I am married to an amazing man, Chris, and we have an 8 year old son named Sean. They are the loves of my life and hopefully you will get to meet them! I have experience with drawing, painting, photography, metals, fibers, ceramics, printmaking, and sculpture. My favorites are watercolor painting, film photography, and ceramics. Hopefully, we will all have a blast in our classes together!
