Mrs. Elise Calhoun
This is my 17th year in education and my 11th year at Prosper High School. In previous years I have taught math. Last year I switched from Math to Computer Science and I LOVE it!! For the past 5 years I have also been teaching Driver's Education. This year I will be teaching Computer Science Fundamentals , Pre-AP Computer Science, Independent Study of Programming Languages, and Independent Study of Gaming. Additionally, this will be my 2nd year as Prosper High School's Academic UIL coordinator. I am looking forward to an amazing year full of new experiences!!
I have been married for 20 years; my husband and I have a son who is a junior here at PHS!! My son and I were both very nervous at the beginning of his freshman year since it was the first time we were going to be in the same school building, but I think we were able to co-exist pretty well (he came to my room for candy and I did not embarrass him in the halls). In addition to our son, we have two 4-legged babies of the canine persuasion, Jet who is 13 and Jill who is almost 7. I have lived in Texas most of my life and love Texas sports (Cowboys, Rangers, Stars, Mavericks).
I encourage all parents to sign up for automated weekly grade notifications from Skyward:
Log in to Skyward like usual, select "My Account" in the upper right hand corner, then click the box for "Receive Grading Emails for my students" at the bottom of the page. You can even change the default grade parameters to suit your personal expectations.
It takes about a minute to sign up and you will get notifications every Saturday morning of your child(ren)'s assignments and overall grades that fall below the minimum for the week in each class!
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
