Editor's Letter

More on the Authorship


I'm so pleased to offer you this issue of the PHE Journal. Like most of you reading this right now, I've been busy navigating these uncertain times. A big bright spot unfolded for me when I connected with Kathy Cormier, who is featured in this issue's Community Leader Spotlight. Kathy has been a powerhouse on the physical education scene for many years. In her more personal life, she has been battling cancer with grit and grace. She openly shares her dedication and courage and I hope that every one who reads her article is sparked in the same way that I was. 

As I worked on editing her article, what struck me was her mention of learning from her students. It made me look at my own teen boys through a different lens.Them being underfoot since March made it easy for me to forget that indeed they have so much to teach about resilience and flow. I invite you to look at the children and students in your lives the same way as the school year unfolds. Whether you are connecting with them in-person or through remote means, I hope that you are able to learn from them as much as they learn from you. 

The whole team at our organization has been working tirelessly around the clock these last several months to provide you other opportunities for learning and general support. You can get a glimpse of this landscape by reading our President's Letter in this issue. And again, after you've enjoyed reading the journal, please swing by FaceBook and join our online PHE Learning Centre Staff Room page, which is filled with interesting information and links. 

Wishing you every happiness, and cheers to a successful return to school.
