Counselor for Last Names A-L

Welcome to Lamar Junior High! My name is Nancy Montecillo, and I am excited to be a counselor here at the Home of the Mustangs!

I have three awesome boys in my life: my husband of more than twenty years, Jose, who is a counselor at another junior high school; Io, my first-born, who’s married to Niki and works at National Instruments in Austin; and Le, my second-born, a senior in high school, and who has the Guinness Book of World Record as one of his favorite books. We have considered Texas as our new home since we migrated from Asia more than ten years ago.

I graduated, cum laude, from the University of the Philippines, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I became a faculty member in my alma mater very shortly after graduation. I started teaching college at barely twenty years of age. After years of teaching psychology, I decided to come to America to teach special education (resource and inclusion) in Spring Branch ISD and, later, in Katy ISD. Those districts provided me with several awesome years of teaching very young and special students. The experience also led me to desire to become a counselor in Lamar CISD.

Now, I am excited to be your junior high counselor! Any time you may need to talk with me, I will be there for you. School may be hard, but asking for help is not. I will also be there for you to celebrate achievements and to plan and dream with you a realistic and achievable future.
