Simon Morwood


I have been teaching since 1998 and I am a PE and Wellness teacher at Vista PEAK. I was born and raised in a big family (5 brothers!) in Melbourne, Australia and earned my Bachelor degrees in my hometown at Deakin University. I hold a BA of Applied Science (Kinesiology), a BA of Teaching, and an MA in Education (Administration and Supervision). I have experience in a variety of subject areas spanning many different age groups.

I first came to APS in 2001 through the Visiting International Faculty Program. Since joining APS, I have taught science, health, PE, and sports medicine. I have been at Vista PEAK since it opened in 2010 and I am the Head Varsity volleyball and tennis coach for the school. I am married and live in the local community with my wife and 2 sons, Kellen and Sheamus.

I hope that my passion for learning, hard work and self improvement is imparted to my students. I am truly excited to be a part of the Vista PEAK community, and hope to make a positive difference in the health, well-being, and overall growth of the students and community.
