While it is very common for a student to make the move from middle school to high school, Mr. Evan Durill is one of several teachers to make the transition this year. 

Mr. Durill is one of the new teachers here at Santa Fe this school year. He previously taught at Summit Middle School and now teaches AP World. He also coaches cross country in the fall and track in the spring.  

Mr. Durill was born in Flower Mound, Texas. He moved to Oklahoma to attend Oklahoma Christian University on a running scholarship. However, teaching wasn’t his chosen career path until his mother and former teacher inspired him to do so.

“He definitely was one of those teachers that you had in your past that would be someone that I learned a lot from, not just in US history but in life,” Durill said. “The impact from him and my mom definitely made me want to be a teacher.”

Durill’s first teaching job was at Summit Middle School, where he taught sixth-grade World Geography.

Mr. Durrill ultimately decided to make the transition to Santa Fe to help further his teaching experience. In the future, he hopes to gain his administrative license. 

Two of his former co-teachers at Summit (Courtney Galvin and Shastin Willman) had moved here years prior and encouraged him in his decision to join Santa Fe. However, his job as a track coach at Santa Fe will always hold a special place in his heart. 

“Every day is a good day to run,” said Mr. Durrill. 

We can thank running for bringing him not only to the state of Oklahoma but right here to Edmond Santa Fe High School.
