Welcome to episode 177 of The PE Umbrella podcast, the ONLY dedicated Primary PE Podcast in the world!
Joining me Under the Umbrella this week for part 2 of our chat is special education PE teacher, YST inclusion lead and GB age-group triathlete Rachel Bown. In part 1, we focused our attention on all things Primary PE, unearthing Rachel’s tips, tricks and suggestions from 20+ years of teaching experience. If you haven’t listened yet, then make sure you go back and check it out!
Fast forward to this week and part 2, and while there are still links to PE, as this is something ingrained into the very fabric of who Rachel is, we dive deeper into her incredible life journey, culminating in a life-defining moment that changed the course of her future. Our discussion leads us down avenues such as:
– Who is Rachel Bown?
– What were your earliest PE memories and how did they help to shape you?
– Is competition good? What contributes to a ‘win at all costs’ attitude?
– Reflections on the year of being diagnosed with a brain tumour
All of that plus many rabbit holes of side conversation add up to an episode that you can’t afford to miss!
So what are you waiting for? Come on over and join us Under the PE Umbrella for part 2 of my chat with Rachel Bown!
