Joey graduates from university with a B.Ed in Physical Education. He is ready to take on the world.
The world is not ready for Joey. He doesn’t get hired by any schools and moves back in with his parents.
Joey turns to the Internet to continue learning about physical education. He finds himself overwhelmed with dated websites and dancing banana clipboard coach GIFs.
He decides to be part of the solution and works tirelessly on building a modern website for physical educators.
ThePhysicalEducator.com launches with the goal of raising the bar for physical education by bringing the world’s physical educators together via social media.
Joey Feith is the founder of ThePhysicalEducator.com. He currently teaches elementary physical education at St. George’s School of Montreal in Quebec, Canada.
Joey believes that every child should have access to a world class physical education experience, and that teacher professional development is the key to that. That is why, between lesson planning and helping kids improve their running, he has dedicated thousands of hours to creating a site that helps inspire fellow physical educators.
Joey has presented his ideas at the local, provincial, national, and international levels through various speaking and training events. He is a recipient of Physical and Health Education Canada’s Dr. Andy Anderson Young Professional Award for the province of Quebec. Joey also was an Education finalist in the 6th Annual Shorty Awards, an awards ceremony honouring the best in social media.
