Dawn Herman

Pre-Kindergarten Teacher

I graduated from Southwest Texas State in 2001 with a degree in Child Development. I've worked with children and families since then. I love spending time with my husband and daughter, cooking, running and reading. I am passionate about early education and enjoy spending my days with young learners.

Jacquelyn Permenter

PPCD Teacher

I began working at Kocurek in 2015 as a TA before becoming the PPCD Teacher in 2017. I went to Texas State University *Eat ‘em up Cats!* and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Exercise and Sports Science in the fall of 2013. I soon realized my true passion was to work with children with special needs and went through an alternative certification program. I enjoy drinking coffee and spending time exploring the outdoors. I am so thankful to be part of such a great community. Go Koalas!
