My name is Loretta Orlando and I am currently the 8th grade Assistant Principal at BBJH. I am proud to be a Native Texan and the youngest of six children. I earned a B.B.A. in Accounting from the University of Houston and a Masters in Education from the University of St. Thomas. I have been in Education for 30 years, the first 19 of which I spent as a teacher, coach, and administrator in the Galveston-Houston Catholic School System. I have been very happily employed at Bear Branch Junior High for the last 11 years.
I thoroughly enjoy camping with my family, watching athletic events, or catching a good movie. I am an avid Houston sports fan and am loyal to all Texas teams. My home is blessed with two sweet dachshunds named Rudy and Toby. My wish for all BBJH students and staff is to be happy and enjoy coming to school each and every day this year. Please let me know if I can ever be of any help to you!
