Teaching with a Purpose with Kari Bullis

My Name is Kari Bullis. I have been teaching at Williamsburg since 2005. I currently teach 9-12 Personal Wellness and Lifeguarding, 8th Grade Exploratory Personal Wellness, as well as 7-12 adapted physical education. I also coach Jr. High Swimming.
My swimming experience started really early in life. Some of my first memories are of being at the pool. I started with lessons as an infant and quickly moved to competitive swimming by the age of six. I swam competitively until college where I taught American Red Cross swimming lessons and coached four years of age-group swimming.
I am a 2000 graduate of Moline High School and attended the University of North Iowa from 2000-2005. I graduated with a BA in Physical Education with a minor in coaching. I completed my Masters Degree in Exercise Science and Health Promotions with an emphasis on Sports Psychology in 2008 from California University.
I currently live in North Liberty with my husband, son, two dogs, and gecko. I am currently the secretary of the Iowa Association for Heath, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance. In October of 2012 I was named the Iowa Secondary Physical Education Teacher of the Year. In my spare time I enjoy Zumba, kayaking, swimming, fishing, and anything else I can do outside especially if it involves water.

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.
