Principal's Message

I am excited to begin my first year as Principal of Bear Branch Junior High! In my 12 years of education I have served as junior high and high school Math teacher and Assistant Principal. 
 
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from Texas A&M University, Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Sam Houston State University and am currently working on my Doctor of Education from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. 
 
I am married to Brian Venghaus, who teaches and coaches at Magnolia Junior High. We have been happily married for 11 years and have two children. A son, Coy, who attends Magnolia Intermediate School, and a daughter, Kodie, who attends Williams Elementary. We attend Stonebridge Church and love living within the Magnolia community. 
 
I am looking forward to a great first year at Bear Branch JH and am honored to serve as your student’s principal. 
 
Please feel free to contact me at any time at jvenghaus@magnoliaisd.org. 
 
Go Bears!!
