Welcome to the home page for Mr. Charles Johnson, History Teacher and Tennis Coach at Basha High School in Chandler, Arizona. This site is meant as a resource for students, athletes, parents, and colleagues.

My Education and Professional Background

I am in my 13th year of teaching (All at BHS) and this year I teach 7th Grade World History, 9th Grade World History, 9th Grade AP World History, and Academic Decathlon. I am a native of the Valley of the Sun, and I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education History from Arizona State University in 2008 and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Northern Arizona University in 2010. In December 2017 I earned status as a National Board Certified Teacher. I have also served as the Girls Freshman, JV, and Varsity Tennis Coach for the past 12 years. My wife, Brittney, and I were married in 2006 and we have three sons, Maxwell (11 years old), Quentin (9 years old), and Levi (2 years old) and one daughter, Eden (5 years old). We currently reside in Queen Creek.

My Educational Philosophy

It is my goal that all students who enter my classroom will understand the power and responsibility that they have as decision makers. I want my students to realize that the choices that they make have an impact not only on their own lives, but on their family, friends, community, city, state, country, and the world at-large. Furthermore, because their personal choices and actions are significant, I want my students to feel that they have a responsibility to promote equity, mutual respect, cooperation, and appreciation for people from all walks of life.
