Mrs. Terri Stretcher
My name is Terri Stretcher and I'm the Jacksboro Middle School Counselor. I was a classroom teacher for 11 years and I've been a school counselor for 26 years. This is my 12th year as the Middle School Counselor in Jacksboro. I received my Bachelor's degree in Education from East Central OK State University in Ada, OK; my Master's of Education degree from Southeastern OK State University in Durant, OK; and my School Counseling Certification from Tarleton State University in Stephenville, TX.
My husband, Mark, is in management with Hobby Lobby and we have two children. Whitney (a JHS gradaute and Tigerette athlete, and a Texas Tech graduate) is a high school AG teacher at Millsap, TX. David (a JHS graduate and a Tiger athlete) served in the United States Marine Corps for four years and graduated from Northwest Lineman College in Denton. He is employed with Ericsson in Lewisville, TX as a telecommunication lineman. We have two dogs, a 7-year-old yellow lab/pointer, Brinkley, and a 5-year-old German Shepherd/black lab, Zeus, that protects our backyard from squirrels. We have one grey cat, Beltre, that watches the acorns fall in our front yard.
I love sports (especially watching when both of my children played), crochet, cross-stitch, reading, baking, and spending time with my family. We are actively involved with the Church of Christ, where my husband serves as a deacon, and work with the church youth group and I help teach the Pre-School Bible class. I've been on the Jack County STOMP Board of Directors since December 2015 and serve as the secretary. I was named to the Jack County Child Welfare Board in June 2019. I am a member of Delta Kappa Gamma, an international honorary society for women educators, was the Area 16 Coordinator over 15 counties till June 2019, and currently serve on the state membership committee. I am a member of ATPE (Association of Texas Professional Educators), TCA (Texas Counseling Association), TSCA (Texas School Counselors' Association), and LSSSCA (Lone Star State School Counselors' Association).
