Staff Picture

My name is Stacy LaBruyere and I am the College & Career Coordinator for the district. I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor's degree. I earned my Master's degree at Sam Houston State University. I also have my principal certification. I have been married for 23 years and have two boys. My oldest son is a MHS Class of 2014 graduate and is currently working on a construction science degree at Texas A&M.  My youngest son is a MHS Class of 2018 graduate and is currently dually enrolled with A&M and Blinn in the Engineering Academy and is a student athlete for the Blinn baseball team. I am looking forward to working with our BEARS and mapping out their post-secondary plans.

Family Picture
My name is Dana Hext and I am the College & Career Secretary at Montgomery High School. I am a graduate of Baylor University with a BS in Elementary Education. I received my Early Childhood and Reading endorsements. I taught for 9 years and have recently added my secondary certification in Family and Consumer Science. I have been married to my college sweetheart for 21 years and we have 3 beautiful children that keep us very busy. They all attend MISD schools.

Counselor Recommendation Student Brag Sheet

Landing Your 1st Job: Sample Cover Letter and Resume

 

Tips for Letters of Recommendation:

1. Each school has their own way of submitting LORs. It is the student's responsibility to find out how! Many schools ask for the email addresses of the people you will be requesting letters from. Then, the institution will email each person and give them a link or portal to access and upload the LOR. Some schools allow the new student to upload a LOR directly to their application portal. Others prefer a LOR to be mailed directly to the institution. Please provide all of this information to the person you have asked to write the LOR.

2. It is the student's responsibility to know the deadlines!  Teachers and counselors need 10 school days notice. Do not wait until the last minute and expect someone to write a LOR in a moment's notice! They can say NO! Your lack of planning is not our emergency!
