Mr. Nicholas Jones

Hello! My name is Nicholas Jones and I am proud to be a Hays Hawk. This year will be my sixteenth in education and my thirteenth year in Prosper.  I have taught multiple grade-levels and have been in administration for the previous 6 years.  I am extremely excited to be the principal at Hays Middle School.  I am a University of Texas graduate and have spent most of my life in the North Dallas area. I am thrilled to be the inaugural principal of Hays Middle School and can't wait to make Hays a school to be proud of.

I am honored and excited to serve as assistant Principal at Hays Middle School!  #believeNtheblue!  I am passionate about serving our students and families in order to provide the very best educational experience!  In my 19 years in education, I have enjoyed teaching at the elementary, middle, and high school levels and serving as assistant Principal in elementary and middle school. 

I am married to Colin, my husband of 24 years, and we have 5 children and 2 dogs.  Halli attends Oregon State University where she is on the gymnastics team, CJ attends the University of North Texas,  Riley attends Grand Canyon University, Bailey is a high school senior, and Jake is in 5th grade.  

My belief that we grow when we are challenged is evident in both my personal and professional life.  As an educator, I believe it is important that we challenge students enough that they experience some degree of struggle.  It is through the struggle that students learn to persevere and accomplish more than they thought was possible!  Personally, I believe in setting goals that challenge me to be my best.  These goals have led me to multiple marathon finish lines (including Boston), an Ironman finish line, a Masters degree, and a Superintendent Certification.

I am here to serve and look forward to an awesome 2019-20 school year at Hays!

I am beyond excited to join the amazing team here at Prosper and to have the privledge to help open Hays Middle School.  I thrive on collaborating with families and students to ensure they are reaching their full potential.  Additionally, I am here to serve our community and enjoy getting to know each student and family.  I graduated from Texas A&M Univeristy, as a second generation Aggie, and intially moved to New York, where I met my husband.  After moving back to Texas I taught in Plano ISD and Little Elm ISD before moving to Prosper this year.  My background is in Special Education, specifically reading instruction, as well as Yearbook and Video Production.  This will be my 5th year as an Assistant Principal, all of which were at the middle school level.  I was made for middle school and love it!

My husband, Ryan, and I live in Prosper with our two sons.  Lincoln will be in 1st grade this year and is an Ice Hockey player. Knox is 2 and loving PreSchool!  Our family loves to attend Stars games together, watch Lincoln's hockey games (or just be at the rink in general), spend time with family at Lake Ontario, enjoy the outdoors and play board games.  In addition to my human children I also have a German Shepherd named Cabbie, two cats (Pumpkin & Ranger) and a fish named Goldie.

My excitement for this year is beyond explanation.  I am here to serve, please reach out if I can help.  GO HAWKS!

I am so excited to be part of opening Prosper's first blue secondary school Bill Hays Middle School!  It is an honor to be a part of an exceptional school, and privilege to be involved in the education of your child. This is my 7th year in Prosper ISD, and my 13th year in education. I have taught multiple grade-levels of math at Prosper High School and have been the Prosper ISD Secondary Math Curriculum Designer for the last 3 years. I will be serving Hays as the Professional Learning Administrator. I am a Texas Christian University graduate, and have been in North Texas my entire education career. I am excited about being part of an amazing team at Hays, and continuing traditions of Prosper while creating new traditions at Hays. My wife Beth and I have lived Prosper for the last 5 years and are excited for all of our children: Caroline (8), Hadley (5), and Ella (2) to attend schools in Prosper ISD. I am proud to live and work in a community that values and supports our schools!
