Mrs. Angela "Joy" Nelson

This is my 21st year in middle school, and I am so excited to join the Rogers family! I spent most of my career teaching in Colorado, have been in Frisco ISD for the past four years, and am thrilled to be teaching 8th Grade US History this year. I have experience teaching Social Studies and ELAR and have also spent time as a school administrator and staff developer. I truly love all aspects of school and learning!

My family and I moved to Prosper this past April. We are loving the small-town feel and tightknit community! My husband, Don, is a Truancy Prevention Specialist for Frisco ISD. My daughter, Bailee, is a freshman at Prosper High School, and my son, Wyatt, is an eighth grader at Reynolds Middle School. My goal each day is to be the kind of teacher that I hope my own children have. In our free time, we enjoy relaxing on our boat on Lake Lewisville, watching football (I love the New Orleans Saints! Who Dat!), and playing with our three dogs (Carson, Rylee, and Ollie). Although you will see my name listed as Angela on some district communication, I actually go by my middle name, which is Joy. 

I look forward to getting to know each of you as we create a better future by learning from our past! Go Eagles!!
