    Lisa Musser Roskens can be found working amongst the talented journalists of the acclaimed Eagle Nation Online newspaper. She's looking forward to her second year at Prosper High School and her 19th in education during 2019-20.  

    Prior to coming to Prosper Independent School District, she led the scholastic journalists of Groom, Texas, in building a program that included award-winning newspaper, yearbook and broadcast divisions. Her other experience has included work as a full-time journalist, stay-at-home mom, and freelance writer.  Roskens' publishing credits span multiple genres and sources, including National Geographic for KidsFort Worth Magazine and numerous trade publications as well as local newspapers and magazines. This school year will mark her ninth to teach scholastic journalism and her fourth as a career/technical education instructor.

    Roskens has a degree in Journalism and English from Angelo State University and was trained one-on-one by instructors who received top honors from the Texas Association of Journalism Educators as well as the Interscholastic League Press Conference. In addition, she has taught workshops for fellow educators on how to build their school's programs as well as on how to create readers, writers, and producers who practice the 21st-century skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.

    She is married to Prosper High School science teacher Larry Roskens. When they're not at school, she and her husband spend every second possible with family, including their five children and two grandchildren.
