|Position:||Social Studies/ 11-12|
Welcome to the educational world of Mr. Evans. It is my privilege to be your teacher this year, and I look forward to our journey together.
My Education and Professional Background
This will be my 14th year teaching, all at Basha, and my 12th year teaching Advanced Placement courses. I am a native of the East Valley. I graduated from Arizona State University in May 2007, where I studied History and Economics, and completed my master’s in Secondary Education from there in August 2008. I was awarded the James Madison Memorial Fellowship for Arizona for 2018, and completed my master’s degree in History from Harvard University in May. As part of my fellowship, I spent the summer of 2019 at Georgetown University studying the Foundations of American Constitutionalism. In addition to my responsibilities at Basha, I serve on the Teacher Advisory Board for the National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. and on the Teacher Advisory Council for the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. I enjoy spending time with my family, golfing, watching sports and Jeopardy!, reading, and watering plants.
My Educational Philosophy
In the words of John Locke, the social contract includes a mutual obligation between its participants. I promise that I will do my very best to make sure that each student has what they need to be successful. I expect that each student will give their very best in return.
