I am so excited to be starting my 17th year at Prosper High School. Prior to serving as the Testing Coordinator and College and Career Counselor, I spent 9 years in the classroom teaching Health, Physical Education, and PALS. During this time, I was also the Head Volleyball Coach and assisted with Softball and Basketball.   

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, working out, watching sports, playing golf, and spending time with my family and friends.

I am looking forward to another great year of serving our students, families, and community.

Be Kind, Eagles!!!

I am blessed to be starting my 9th year at Prosper High School.  I love working with students to help them navigate their high school academic experience.  It is so rewarding to see them enter high school as enthusiastic 9th graders and be able to witness them walk across the stage as confident seniors ready to pursue their post-high school goals.

This is my 28th year in education.  I have taught middle and high school Social Studies, Speech, and Student Council.  I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Texas A&M University where I met my husband.  My husband, Rusty, owns Panther Creek Construction, where my son, Kyle works as well.  My daughter, Christiann, graduated from the University of Arkansas and teaches first grade in Frisco.   So two Aggies, an SFA Lumberjack, and a Razorback makes for a fun house!

When I'm not at school, I love to shop, read and love on my dogs, Bella and Ranger.

It is my pleasure to serve students with the last names beginning Co-G.

Greetings, Eagle family!

It is with great pride that I begin my third year with Prosper High School, and the students I serve have the last names H-Ll. This is my fourth year in Texas, my seventh year as a high school counselor, and 12th year working in education. I grew up in Marietta, GA, earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and both my Master of Education and Educational Specialist degrees at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

My move to Texas was prompted by my spouse, Dr. Lisha Storey, who is a professor of English and director of the Scarbrough Writing Center at Austin College. When not talking about future plans or feelings, I enjoy reading, cycling, exploring coffee shops and other regional spots on my motorcycle, spending time with my two dogs, and just being outside at my pool. Feel free to stop by my office - I’ll even turn down my heavy metal for you!

I am excited to be starting my sixth year at Prosper High School and my 27th year in education. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies at Abilene Christian University and my Master of Education in School Counseling at Midwestern State University.  My journey in education started in the classroom teaching middle school math for 7 years and the last 18 years as a high school counselor.  I have worked at several schools including Zundelowitz Junior High and Rider High School in Wichita Falls and Leander High School in Leander, Texas before coming to Prosper High School.

I am blessed to have a supportive husband, Tony, who is a teacher and coach here at Prosper High School. We have 2 sons, Caden and Ty and a crazy little Jack Russell named Sadie. In my free time I enjoy reading, watching PHS sports, and spending time with my family.

My responsibilities at Prosper High School include serving students with the alpha last names Lo-N. I am thrilled to be an Eagle and look forward to a great year serving our students, families, and community at Prosper High School.

Proud to be an Eagle!!!!

I am excited to be starting my third year here at Prosper High School and my 16th year overall in education. I graduated from Appalachian State University (the nation's most picturesque college campus) in Boone, North Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts in English and earned an M.Ed in Counseling from North Carolina State University in Raleigh. 

In my career, I have worked as a Grades 9-12 English teacher, a high school counselor, and a college career counselor. My work has taken me from North Carolina classrooms to the middle of Manhattan as a Career Development Specialist at New York University. Prior to arriving at PHS, I worked in career development down the road in Denton at the University of North Texas. 

Away from school, I attend a lot of live music concerts and write about them for various publications. I also enjoy reading, baseball, basketball, Netflix, and of course spending time with my friends and family.

Hello, Prosper Eagles! I am thrilled to be embarking on my second year as a PHS counselor where I will be serving students with the last names Sm-Z. In addition to my end-of-the-alphabet population, I have the privilege of serving our Foreign Exchange students and their host families.

Over the past 9 years, I have had the wonderful opportunity to teach English and ESL in Wisconsin, Taiwan, and McKinney, TX. My undergraduate degree is in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Teaching English as a Second Language from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse. After I returned from teaching in Taiwan, I earned my Master’s of School Counseling from Angelo State University.

When I am not in my cozy work office, I enjoy adventure eating, baking cookies, and riding horses. This is going to be a fabulous year, and I look forward to serving you and your family!

Hello Eagel Nation!! I am thrilled to begin my16th year in education and my 5th year here at PHS.  I live in Prosper with my husband and two children and our fur babies.  My daughter will be in 7th grade this year at Reynolds and my son is in 4th grade. I look forward to watching them grow up in Eagle Nation.  I have been blessed to move from the classroom this to take on a new challenge.  I will be the testing coordinator / Adminstrator for PHS.  

I have an undergraduate degree in Biology and Psychology from Charleston Southern University and a Master's degree in Biology from The Citadel. I also have a Master's degree from Garner Webb University in Educational Leadership.  My family and I relocated from Florida via North Carolina so we Tarheels fans to the end.  I worked in a lab for several years and then moved into the classroom where I found my passion.  I have a deep passion for the field of science and for students.

My goal is to provide you with the best educational experience and prepare my students for the next steps in life. I am looking forward to having a great year and learning more about each of my students.
