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
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 Masters in Secondary Education from there in August 2008. This will be my twelfth year teaching, all at Basha, and my tenth year teaching Advanced Placement courses. I was awarded the James Madison Memorial Fellowship for Arizona for 2018, and am pursuing a Master's degree in History from Harvard University. As part of my fellowship, I spent the summer a t Georgetown University studying the Foundations of American Constitutionalism with the other Fellows from around the country. In addition to my responsibilities at Basha, I serve on the Teacher Advisory Board for the National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution, traveling to DC quarterly for meetings and trainings, and serve on the Bill of Rights Institute’s Teacher Council. I enjoy watching sports and Jeopardy!, reading, and mowing the lawn 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.
