Mrs. Terri Stretcher
My name is Terri Stretcher and I'm the Jacksboro Middle School Counselor. I've been in education all my life---my dad was a coach/social studies teacher and my mom was a Kindergarten teacher, both are now retired. My brother is a coach/math teacher at Lindsay, TX. I was a classroom teacher for 11 years and I've been a school counselor for 25 years. This is my 11th 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 Crockett, TX. David (a JHS graduate and a Tiger athlete) served in the United States Marine Corps for four years and will graduate from Lineman College in December 2018. David was married in September 2017 to Cheyenne (a JHS graduate) who is a dental assistant. We have a 16-year-old housecat that protects and runs our house and two dogs, a 6-year-old yellow lab/pointer, Brinkley, and a 4-year-old German Shepherd/black lab, Zeus, that protect our backyard from squirrels.
I love sports (especially watching when both of my children played), crochet, cross-stitch, reading, baking, and spending time with my family. I'm actively involved with the Church of Christ and teach the Preschool Bible class. I've been on the Jack County STOMP Board of Directors since 2015 and serve as the secretary. I am a member of Delta Kappa Gamma, an international honorary society for women educators, and currently serve as the Area 16 Coordinator over 15 counties. 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).
