Mr. Roland Ranz Nelson

Hello! My name is Mr. Nelson, and I'll be teaching AP Language, English I Pre-AP, and PSAT here at Prosper High School for the 2019-2020 school year. 

I am an eleven-year educator who has taught virtually everything in secondary ELAR, but most of my experience and expertise lies in Pre-AP English I and AP Language, so I'm excited to be teaching those very same courses this year! I have taught in Lewisville, Highland Park, and McKinney most recently. I am passionate about advanced coursework and AP courses in particular: I sincerely believe that all students are entitled to high-quality curriculum and instruction at the collegiate level while they are still in high school. I love helping students achieve in May what they found impossible in August. I am also an aspiring administrator interested in educational research and policy.

My own three children--Jonah, Eli, and Julia--will soon attend Furr Elementary, so my wife Laci and I are excited to invest in the Prosper learning community. I love books, film, games (board and video), exercise, podcasts, the news, and church. 

Never hesitate to contact me for any questions or concerns you might have. I am excited to make PHS students college ready!
