Joey Feith, The Physical Educator
Leading from the Trenches....A journey of a young PE teacher. Purposeful planning....unpacking broad learning outcomes into teachable content.
Joey Feith is a Canadian physical educator and the founder of ThePhysicalEducator.com.
He currently teaches elementary physical education at St. George's School of Montreal where he pours all of his energy and enthusiasm into helping his students discover and develop their physical literacy.
In 2010, with no prior experience in web or graphic design, Joey launched ThePhysicalEducator.com: an online professional development resource for physical educators. The website's mission is to help teachers become the best physical educators they can be. The site fulfills its mission by producing high-quality resources for teachers to use in their teaching, by helping teachers connect and share through social media, and by providing engaging professional development opportunities for physical educators to attend.
Through his work at ThePhysicalEducator.com, Joey has empowered hundreds of thousands of teachers from around the globe to take their teaching to the next level and raise the bar for physical education. He has presented his ideas and shared his passion at professional development events throughout North America and Europe.
Joey is the recipient of Physical and Health Education Canada's Dr. Andy Anderson Young Professional Award for the province of Quebec. He was also an Education finalist at the 6th Annual Shorty Awards, an awards ceremony honouring the best in social media.
When not lesson planning, teaching, blogging, or designing, Joey enjoys spending time with his wife Jess. You can usually find them camping on the West Coast, paddleboarding in Nova Scotia, or dancing up a storm at weddings.
