Why Join #PhysEdU?


Highest-Quality Courses

Get ready to be blown away by some of the most visually stunning, innovative, and comprehensive professional development you have ever experienced! As an international keynote speaker, I’ve spent the last few years making a name for myself as one of the best presenters in the world. With #PhysEdU, I’m taking those skills to a whole-new level!

Teacher-Tested Ideas

I have a rule that I only share ideas I have actively tested and explored in my own teaching. As a current physical educator, I understand what it is like to live the grind of teaching. Every single #PhysEdU course has been designed with my fellow physical educators in mind so as to make every idea or concept as approachable as possible!

Self-Paced Learning

Each #PhysEdU course is jam-packed with ideas to help you take your teaching to the next level. Because I know just how busy life can be for physical education teachers, I designed the course to allow you to learn at your own pace, with frequent breaks and activities in which you will have opportunities to apply your new skills and knowledge.

Exclusive Access

As a #PhysEdU student, you will have access to exclusive resources that I have developed to help complement your learning. Additionally, #PhysEdU courses often include free access to premium resources so as to help you try these resources out in your own teaching.

Proof Of Learning

Once you’ve completed your #PhysEdU course, you will have access to a certificate of completion that can help you prove your dedication to your own professional development.

Always Growing

With almost a decade’s worth of work in professional development, I’m excited to finally have a online academy platform through which I can share all of the ideas, resources, and presentations that I have developed over the years. Stay tuned as new and excited #PhysEdU courses continue to be developed and launched!

About The Instructor

As the founder of ThePhysicalEducator.com, I have spent most of the past decade developing resources and learning opportunities for physical educators around the world. A physical educator myself, I understand how important the role of physical education is in a child’s development and what steps can be taken to help ensure that we are developing effective, meaningful experiences for the students we get to serve. In between lesson planning, teaching, and tying shoelaces, I have travelled the world as a keynote speaker and presenter at some of the best professional development opportunities our profession has to offer. When I haven’t been able to work with teachers face-to-face, I have dedicated every non-teaching second to supporting physical education teacher development through ThePhysicalEducator.com’s blog, resources, podcast, videos, and live events. I would not have launched #PhysEdU unless I was absolutely confident in my ability to help you take your teaching to the next level. I hope you will consider learning with me as I would be truly honoured to help you grow as a teacher!
