Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Jonathan P. Smith
Greetings! I am from Miami, Florida and I began teaching High School English in South Florida five years ago. Since then I have taught 8th through 12th grades, on-level, honors, pre-AP, and Advanced Placement Literature and Composition.I have a Bachelor's degree in English focused on post-colonialism and anthropology from the University of Florida (Go Gators!). This will be my third year teaching in Texas, and my first in Prosper ISD. I love the performing arts, sports, traveling, hiking, spearfishing, and diving.
I believe in the tranformative powers of language that empower us to forge our identities, challenge our thinking, and better our world. I will use this belief to uplift my students in every conceivable fashion. I look forward to working with each of you in the coming school year and will always do everything in my capacity to do right by my students. I am ecstatic to be a part of Prosper High School!
I am keenly aware of the challenges and disappointments we have collectively faced in 2020 and want all of you to know that I am here to listen and support you. If I am unable to help, I will find the person who can.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. Please allow 24 hours for response.
