The Letter Project

Researchers from the College of Kinesiology at the University of Saskatchewan are looking for women who are currently teaching or have previously taught physical education (including retired teachers), to participate in an innovative project.

If you are a current, previous, or retired physical education teacher we are hoping you will share your thoughts and perspectives with us. We want to understand your experiences, especially the barriers, opportunities, skills, competencies, expectations, and hopes and dreams of teaching physical education. We hope this information will help us better understand the lived experiences of women who teach physical education and may help others (e.g., fellow teachers, administrators) to know how to support women physical education teachers during their careers.

We are asking you to complete a short anonymous questionnaire online which will ask you to write a letter to a younger version of yourself, sharing your experiences teaching physical education, and your involvement in intramurals and extracurricular activities. We anticipate this will take you approximately 30-45 minutes.

Land Acknowledgement

PHE Saskatchewan would like to use this website in a way that recognizes the land we are all situated on across our beautiful province. We are hosting this website on Treaty territory situated all across Saskatchewan. Let us all take this opportunity to recognize and be grateful for the many First Nation, Metis, Michif and Inuit peoples whose footsteps have marked this land for generations. Let us also give thanks to the elders and knowledge keepers, those with us today and those who are no longer with us, for their stewardship and teachings. May we all continue to walk together towards truth and reconciliation.
