Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Robin J. Burns, but you will call me Mr. Burns. I am originally from the midwest specifically Minnesota and South Dakota (born in Minnesota; moved to South Dakota when I was 16). Arizona is now my home after I moved out here in 2015. My wife and I have been together for almost a year and we just had our first child: Ember Grace Burns.
Basha High School has been my "home" for the past three years. This is my sixth year in education. Before Basha, I was an English teacher at Cesar Chavez High School in Laveen. Prior to taking on high school student, I was a teacher at a middle school in Sioux Falls, SD. In addition to teaching, I have coached all levels of boys basketball: I've coached middle school boys basketball; coached freshmen; coached junior varsity; and coached as an assistant on the varsity level. Unfortunaley, I was focusing on raising my child for this year and pursuing other activities. I was extremely happy serving as an assistant for the Basha Boys' Basketball program for two years.
My life outside of school is reading, drawing, spending time with my wife and daughter, and enjoying whatever God puts in front of me.
