Mr. Calhoun received his Bachelor of Science from Denison University, and in 2013 he started at BASIS San Antonio Medical Center, helping to open that campus. He has stayed with BASIS Curriculum Schools ever since, teaching a myriad of subjects. While teaching, he published a paper in 2014 in Fluid Phase Equilibria. He moved to BASIS Independent McLean to be part of its amazing team, and to be part of the larger intellectual D.C. area community.
Alongside his teaching, Mr. Calhoun has coached the state runner-ups in co-ed flag football, regional final four in boys Middle School soccer, and regional champions in girls elementary basketball. He has also led a NASA sponsored program called Cubes in Space and had five groups of students selected to send a small science experiment into space.
At BASIS Independent McLean, Mr. Calhoun hopes to bring what he has learned from other BASIS Curriculum Schools. He has three brothers, two of whom work in BASIS Curriculum Schools, one in San Antonio and the other in Flagstaff, and two dogs with whom he spends most of his time. When he is not with his dogs, he enjoys playing sports and exploring the city.
