Mr. John Frensley

Mr. Frensley was born, raised, went to public school in, went to college in, and taught AP Physics for 12 years in Richardson.  He moved to Prosper and started working in Prosper ISD in 2017, where he teaches Physics and AP Physics.

 

Sadly, physics sometimes receives a poor reputation.  Some teachers have the idea that only "smart people" can do physics.  In other cases, physics is presented in a way that is confusing and complex, giving people a bad taste for physics.  Mr. Frensley entered the field of teaching in order to shatter those stereotypes.  Mr. Frensley enjoys making physics fun and straightforward without decreasing the challenge and rigor involved in learning physics.  Mr. Frensley wants students to see physics in every aspect of their lives, not merely in distant, abstract places.  Students who take Mr. Frensley's class should get ready to talk about physics in terms of driving a car, sports, music, appliances at home, and other familiar places.  Parents are encouraged to talk to their students regularly about what they are doing in physics, and ask their students to explain physics concepts in a way the parents can understand.  If the student struggles to do so, it may be a sign that they are encountering difficulties with physics.

 

Mr. Frensley enthusiastically invites all students to use resources that can help them when they have difficulty in physics, such as study groups, online materials recommended by Mr. Frensley, and Mr. Frensley himself during Eagle Time and during before/after school tutorials.  Parents are encouraged to communicate with Mr. Frensley through e-mail (please put your student's name in the subject line) when difficulty comes so that parent-and-teacher can work together to ensure the student's success and growth.
