Mrs. Lori Venable
Hi! I'm Mrs. Venable, and I'll be serving as a Special Education Paraprofessional at Jacksboro Middle School this year. I am so excited to be a part of the amazing SpEd team at JMS!
I am a 5th-generation native of Jack County, veteran of the United States Air Force, and PROUD graduate of Jacksboro High School. My husband, Ben, and I have been married for 23 years and have five amazing kids--three adult daughters and two sons who are students at Jacksboro High School. As a former Purple Pride Band member, I am a HUGE fan of the Purple Pride Band, and I can usually be found during football games near the top of the bleachers during halftime to get a full view of the marching show. Of course, I love my Tigers and Tigerettes, too!
After being away from Jacksboro for twenty years, my family moved back in 2018 and have been loving life here ever since. I've dreamed of being a teacher since the third grade, and my wildest dream has been to teach in the town that made me who I am. After serving as a substitute teacher for the district for three years, I could not possibly be more overjoyed to join the Middle School staff and the JISD family. I consider this a profound honor and privilege, a blessing beyond measure, and a dream come true. I pray that this is the first of many years of service to the town and schools I love so dearly!
