Montgomery HS selects Maxwell to lead Bears Swim and Dive in 2023-2024 school year

Montgomery ISD has announced the hiring of Kelly Maxwell as the new Montgomery HS Bears Swim and Dive coach following the retirement of long-time coach Dale Villemez. Coach Maxwell is returning to MISD after teaching at Lone Star ES and Montgomery HS in 2005-2010 and is coming from Conroe ISD.

Maxwell has been in education for 22 years and will be teaching Professional Communications for Montgomery’s CTE Department. She has experience teaching students in grades 3-12, most recently as a debate coach and communications applications teacher, and says she is excited to return to Montgomery ISD and to the pool.

“I love this community and I have a passion for swimming, so I’m excited to get to work with the students and swimmers at Montgomery HS,” Maxwell said. “The district just has the most exceptional children and the best parents and I’m very excited to work with Ms. Lou again at the MISD Aquatic Center!”

Maxwell comes with 18 years experience as a competitive swimmer herself and she has been a head swim coach at both Conroe HS and Cy-Springs HS. She lives in Montgomery and is the proud mother of two boys, the youngest of which graduated from Lake Creek HS is 2022.

“Coach Maxwell is truly passionate about swim and brings excitement, dedication and experience to the pool,” Montgomery HS Principal Noah Hollander said. “And communication is at the heart of any successful program, so having Coach Maxwell teaching Professional Communications allows all MHS scholars, and especially our scholar-athletes, an opportunity to improve communication skills.”
