The Health Teacher: Quick resources

Welcome to The Health Teacher

A resource for teachers and parents​

About Me

Hi, I’m Amy Smith, I teach Middle School Health at the Hong Kong International School and have a passion for curriculum that is current, relevant, adaptable, and shared. I’ve presented at conferences in Asia as well as at SXSWedu and the SHAPE America National Convention. Outside of the classroom, I write the teacher’s guide and a weekly column for Choices, Scholastic’s health and life-skills magazine for teens.
