U.S. History


Welcome to Coach Kahl's Page!

About Coach Kahl:

My name is Charlie Kahl and I am originally from a west suburb of Chicago, IL. I received my high school diploma in 2008 from Kaneland High School - Maple Park, IL.

I love Desoto County and it is truly a dream of mine to teach the youth of DeSoto, MS.  

Coach Kahl's Education:

After graduation I enlisted in the US Army and served 3 1/2 years mostly at Fort Campbell, KY. While in the army, I served as a squad leader for an artillery unit and also taught many military adjustment classes. It was my time in the army that sparked my love for teaching. I found great joy helping young soldiers transition and watching them succeed.

Upon my honorable discharge, I enrolled at Southern Illinois University (Carbondale). I worked extremely hard through SIUC's vigorous education program. I am proud to say that I graduated from SIUC with my bachelor's degree in history education and a minor in coaching. I will forever be a SIU Saluki! GO DAWGS!!!
