A look at Research with Shrehan Lynch

Sheehan Lynch:
I am a 27 year old doctoral student at the University of Alabama studying Sport Pedagogy. I moved to the United States in 2015 after teaching Physical Education in an inner London school, England. I played almost every sport growing up and am one of those annoying sports people who is just ‘lucky’ enough to pick up new sports. I keep myself fairly active by running and swimming regularly. I have learnt an incredible amount throughout my time at the university and my thoughts on education as a whole have changed. I feel we are always learning and always in the act of becoming. My research interests are linked to critical and transformative pedagogy, social justice issues and qualitative research. My passion lies with providing each and every child in schools with an inclusive, thought provoking educational opportunity within PE.

Keeping Active in Mind and Body to Enhance Student Opportunities in Education.


Andy Hair:
I am a Physical Education and Physical Literacy Coach based in Geelong, Australia. My goals in life are to see students excel and achieve their dream and be able to be confident to enjoy everything they do. My PE moto is DREAM, BELIEVE, ACHIEVE. Outside of the Gym I live a very active life. I am passionate about Ironman Triathlons pushing myself to my own personal goals each day of the week. I feel it is great to have role models and people to look up to.
I am determined to create an environment and culture for students that is diverse and challenging. With prediction comes comfortability. With uncertainty comes risk taking and growth. My direction in education is to leave a legacy for students and teachers than is considered unique and inspiring. Students deserve to be challenged each and every time they are involved in Physical Activity. In recent times I founded the Aussie PhysEd Network linking 100s of Physical Education Teachers through conversations and individual pursuits across Australia. As a result we have seen an increase in academic performance by these teachers searching for best practise models and in turn many have become influential leaders to others through out network.

Andy Horne: This is my 12th year teaching high school health and physical education. In 2015, I had the honor and privilege to be recognized as SHAPE America’s National Health Education Teacher of the Year. Graduating from Indiana University, I taught in Bloomington, IN for year before coming to New Trier High School in 2003.

Adopt-a-Gym is a “by kids, for kids” fundraiser where a school raises funds to purchase physical education equipment for another school that is short on resources to purchase adequate equipment. Funds are raised through a fun fitness event such as fun runs, dance-a-thons and other creative active events.

This process has many benefits! Students from the donor school learn the power of philanthropy; they learn that, yes, they CAN make a difference in the world! They learn that they don’t need to receive something in return in order to give; that the positive change they create in the lives of children just like them makes it all worth while!

Teachers from the schools that receive the equipment can give their students the well-rounded physical education program they deserve. The students will not only be exposed to numerous physical activities, but get hands on experience because of the volume of equipment their physical educators have access to. This can lead to tons of fun, reduction in childhood obesity, college scholarships & most of all, overall healthier lifestyle habits.

Last, but certainly not least, the students learn that there are good people in the world. This lesson of humanity builds good faith inside them which could lead to them passing it on throughout their lives. The character built during the whole process is immeasurable!
