S1E03 – Jared Maisel – Athletic Training in International Schools
I had the pleasure of interviewing Jared Maisel who is a certified Athletic Trainer working at Concordia Shanghai. He has worked as an athletic trainer at the US collegiate level in such sports as football, tennis, softball, soccer, rugby and field hockey. He also got the opportunity to work with the Philadelphia Flyers organization of National Hockey League.
This is his first international school posting. He knows Athletic training and is passionate about bringing his Health & Wellness knowledge to international schools around the world. In the past 4 years, he has made tremendous strides in improving the safety of athletes in the APAC conference and you’ll hear how Jared saves his school a lot of money each year. He will also share a lot of great resources with us that I will link in the show notes iteachoverseas.com/103 and if you listen to the end, Jared has an important message for all international schools. He’s a great guy and looking for a new adventure next year….maybe one of our listeners can help him out.
iTO Tip of the Week
This tip comes from Glynis Ogden from Shanghai American School. When looking to book a rental car for a six week summer vacation in North America, you may find it cheaper to book two separate car rentals during that time. Many car rental companies have great deals on monthly rates so you would need to book a separate two week car rental to get you through the rest of your vacation.
