Mr. Joel Kurtz

I have been with Judson Independent School District since 2015. For the majority of the time, I was the social studies and writing teacher for third and fifth graders at Miller's Point Elementary. Since 2021, I have been the art teacher at Converse Elementary. Here, I teach all grade levels: Pre-K to fifth grade.  

Working as an art teacher has been a blessing, since art has been my number one passion my entire life. After graduating Clemens H.S., I had the pleasure of attending the Art Institute of Houston where I was taught many different art principles, techniques, and mediums, going on to receive my Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in December of 2008.  I have been beyond excited to pass down the skills I've picked up along the way to the students as well as encourage their unique creativity.
