Michelle Kocour-Borrelli, MA Ed.
Michelle Kocour-Borrelli began her career in education after earning her BFA in Visual Arts Studies from the University of North Texas. She taught elementary art in Fort Worth, Texas, then stayed home with her son, Daniel for three years. While being a stay at home, Michelle remained active and involved in education through the Texas Art Education Association and with the university. Michelle then obtained her PK-4 teaching credential and taught first grade for four years just north of Austin. It was then that Michelle realized she enjoyed working with students with special needs. After moving back to California five years ago, Michelle began working in the field of special education and with students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Michelle earned her Master of Arts degree in Education with a specialization in Special Education in May of 2015. Before teaching at Mission Hills High School, Michelle taught at the San Marcos Unified Adult Transition Program, then transferred over to MHHS as a mild/moderate teacher at the end of the 2015-2016 school year. Michelle is excited to be co-teaching in the Excel and Bridges program at MHHS!
Michelle is married and has one son, two stepsons, and a stepdaughter. She enjoys spending time with her family and Rottweiler, riding qauds in the dunes, camping, visiting art museums, traveling, and of course, TEACHING!
