Hello there, my name is Mr. Bowden and am one of the Elementary School Physical Education teachers for this year. This is my third year at the school, and I am super excited to be part of the Athletics team. We will be driving our programs forward this year, playing more matches and entering more tournaments than ever before. Come on GRIZZLIES!
In terms of my education background, I initially studied Business at Southampton University in the UK and then completed my teaching PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate of Education) through the prestigious University of Nottingham. I have been in Guangzhou for six years, with previous teaching roles within CIEO.
A sports fanatic from a young age, I spent my entire childhood playing soccer, rugby, cricket, tennis and golf. I went on to play junior professional soccer and cricket in my teenage years. My coaching career started 11 years ago and this truly is my passion, there is nothing better than watching my students improve and succeed on the sporting field and grow into responsible, respectful people.
My coaching philosophy focuses around the power of positivity and respect. My students and I will respect each other, the school and ourselves. I aim to always provide positive, fun lessons to inspire the children I teach!
