Mr. Jeff Nelms

My name is Mr. Nelms. I teach Reading I/II and English I. This is my 10th year overall in education and my third working for Lewisville Independent School District and Harmon High School. 

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Texas at Dallas and my Masters in Educational Administration and Policy Studies from the University of Texas at Arlington. I am certified to teach English Language Arts in grades 8-12, Pre-K through 6th grade, and I also have my Principal certification.

Prior to teaching, I served as a Sports Editor and Writer for various newspapers, most notably and recently, The Dallas Morning News. I still write on a freelance basis.

I look forward to working with students and parents this school year.
