About Me

Mr. Tyler Broders

Welcome to Nelson Prairie School.  I live in New Lenox with my wife and 3 children who attend New Lenox schools.  I am honored to be the principal at Nelson Prairie. This is my 6th year in New Lenox School District and this is exactly where I want to be.  The Nelson Prairie community is successful because of the partnership between school and home.  If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at tbroders@nlsd122.org or 815-462-2874.
