About Joey Feith

The first thing you need to know about me is that I love my job. Nothing makes me feel more alive than getting to help young people discover and develop their physical literacy through meaningful physical education experiences.

It was this pure passion for my work that pushed me to launch ThePhysicalEducator.com in 2010.

With no experience in web development, social media, or graphic design, I set out to develop a platform that would a) provide great value for physical educators, and b) that would best represent the high standard of quality so many teachers from around the world strive for on a daily basis. Six years later and I am still committed to achieving that goal.

Along the way, I have presented my work and my ideas at various professional development events and conferences. I have had the honour of working with physical educators at the local, provincial, national, and even international levels.

ThePhysicalEducator.com receives over 250 000 visits per year and has a social following of over 31 000 physical education teachers and advocates. More than 2500 people receive my newsletter, hundreds have subscribed to my podcast, and teachers from all over the world participate on Twitter in ThePhysicalEducator.com’s bi-monthly #pechat.

Popular Topics


Assessment in Action

Assessment in physical education is an obstacle that continues to bewilder physical educators from around the world. The constant struggle to balance “activity time” with “reflection time” leaves teachers, and their students, confused as to what to prioritize. In this active session, I’ll be sharing some good news: that assessment can be baked into activities in class so as to maximize both student participation and reflection all while allowing teachers to collect important evidence of their students’ learning! We will explore different methods I use in my teaching to promote ongoing reflection and data collection in each and every lesson. You will leave this session with a variety of tools and tactics that can be immediately applied in your teaching!

Purposeful #PhysEd: Standards-Based Instructional Design

Teach with intention and purpose by adopting a standards-based approach in your teaching! In this session, I will introduce you to a backwards design approach that will help both you and your students understand what is to be learned in PE, how you know if learning has occurred, and, most importantly, why it is so important that it be learned in the first place! The simple step-by-step method presented in this sessions combined with the real-world examples of applied standards-based approaches will leave you with the confidence you need to take your teaching to the next level!

Teaching with Technology

Technology is evolving at such a rapid pace that it can become overwhelming for teachers who are looking to integrate it in their teaching. The purpose of this session is to provide you with some clarity when it comes to tech. We will explore the big “why” behind the use of technology as a pedagogical tool in physical education. From there, we will explore technology as a solution to common obstacles that physical educators face in their teaching. Finally, I will provide you with some of the best use cases of technology that I have encountered throughout my career! You can expect to leave this session with a clear plan as to how to start integrating technology in your physical education lessons and a multitude of ideas in your digital tool belt!

Boostrapped Professional Development

Professional development is the key to empowering physical educators to continue to grow as teachers throughout their careers. However, for many reasons, access to PD is often limited. This can lead to teaching practices that become routine, stagnant, or, in some situations, inappropriate. In this session, I will be sharing some strategies you can use to design your own self-directed, bootstrapped professional development plan. Discover the step-by-step process that will allow you to identify opportunities for growth, explore resources and tactics that will connect you with the tools you need to grow, and adopt habits that will help you keep that fire in your belly roaring!
