Upland Heights Elementary School

Nelson Homepage

My name is Lara Nelson, and I am honored to be the Assistant Principal at Upland Heights. I came to Upland Heights in 2017, and LOVE being at the best school around!  I look forward to getting to know the parents and the students better this school year and am here to help make this your child’s best school year yet!


I have been in the public education realm since 2000.  Before becoming an Assistant Principal, I taught everything from 1st Grade through 5th Grade and worked as a Reading Specialist for 2 years.  I love working with all different ages of students and know what it takes for kids to learn and have a good educational experience.


Before teaching, I attended Angelo State University where I met my husband, Jeff.  We have two children who both attend Frenship, and we all bleed blue and gold!  I hope that your family will be involved in the Frenship community and will be filled with Tiger Pride!


I am looking forward to working with each of you and your children this year. Please feel free to send notes, call, come by, or e-mail with any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you for all you do for your child! I know that we will have an outstanding year together!
