Welcome to healtheducationforteens.com! My name is Stacy and I am really excited about what this page will become.
My professional story is that I trained as a Physical and Health educator at QUT in Australia. I went into this field because I loved coaching, I was good at it and I enjoyed the results that I saw and the impact sport had on my athletes. I enjoyed 4 years of university and 4 years teaching in Brisbane.
In Australia we are very blessed to have health integrated into our PE curriculum and we have separated PE and Health as options for Years 11 and 12. I loved this curriculum! It started my passion for health all over the world.
I moved to Uganda in 2008 as a Maths and PE teacher and due to my lack of interest in Maths, quickly put my hand up to write the PSHE (Personal Social Health Education) program for the school. PSHE is a wonderful program and as this site develops I will share my work in this area.
Six years later I moved to South Korea and worked with the MYP philosophy. Like Australia it is attempting to combine Health and PE. This can be very tricky as people at times prefer to favour the physical over the other dimensions of health. This site aims to be able to provide MYP Health units and activities.
Today, I am in Argentina as full time health teacher working with the CGC (Common Ground Collaborative), to create a new health curriculum. This curriculum hopes to align the Argentine, Australian and American standards.
This site aims to be able to provide resources for parents, kids, teens and teachers. I have many people that inspire me in how I create lessons and have many links available that share the wealth of health and wellness information around the world.
I hope that everyone who accesses the site is able to implement a resource into their lesson, share a resource with their students or families and/or take a personal message away from what I am sharing.
My name is Stacy. I am an educator. I have become an advocator for health education for many years.
