My research relates to the 'health work' of teachers. Health work refers to any health-related work teachers execute for the health and wellbeing of children, including the health and physical education curriculum and mandated policy both implicitly and explicitly. The theoretical frames I utilise for data analysis include Archer's reflexivity and Noddings' ethics of care.
