Dr. Julia Venghaus

I am excited for my third year as Principal of Bear Branch Junior High! In my 14 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 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 13 years and have two children who both attend MISD schools. We attend Stonebridge Church and love living within the Magnolia community.

I am looking forward to another great year at Bear Branch JH and am honored to serve as your student’s principal. 

Go Bears!!
