Mr. Evan Shepherd

Welcome to Hope Squad and 7th grade Digital Innovation! This will be my 5th full year in Prosper ISD and 2nd year at Hays Middle School (GO HAWKS!). I taught 6th grade social studies and coached football, basketball, track and tennis at Reynolds Middle School in Prosper for three years before moving to Hays Middle School to teach 6th grade Social Studies for the 2019-2020 school year. This year I will be the Hays Hope Squad Advisor on campus and will also teach 7th grade Digital Innovation.

As the Hope Squad Advisor at Hays, I am excited about the opportunity to lead and serve alongside our Hope Squad members on campus and in our community. We WILL ensure that Hays Middle School is the best place possible for ALL students and we will work alongside the Hope Squads at the other Prosper ISD campuses to serve the community.

I am a world traveler and I love sharing with my students about my travels and the unique cultures I get to experience and share in. I have traveled to many countries with very unique and incredible cultures such as New Zealand, Fiji, Scotland, Italy, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland and England (to a name a few) with many more destinations to be visited this year and beyond!  I am also an avid rock climber, mountain and road biker, skiier and overall outdoors enthusiast in my spare time-- don't worry, they are all much safer hobbies/sports than you may think! 

I graduated from the University of North Texas where I received my Bachelors of Science in Sports Management, as well as History. After college, I spent around 3 years in the corporate world finding my ultimate calling in teaching. During and following my college years, I have lived in various places such as Colorado, Wyoming and Los Angeles, CA.

I am excited for the 2020-2021 school year and proud to be at Hays Middle School! Go Hawks!
