P.E. Teacher and Coach
B.A. (Political Discourse and Rhetoric of Rule), New York University; M.A. (Poetry), University of California, Irvine Husayn joins Northwest after teaching and coaching at The Bush School.
Husayn has also served as a teaching assistant of writing courses at the University of California Irvine and spent a year as the assistant director of admissions and the Wilbraham & Monson Academy in Wilbraham, MA. Husayn also plays and has coached competitive ultimate.In his application, Husayn tells us: “As an elite ultimate athlete I pride myself on playing (and coaching) a sport in which social justice, relative to other sports, is a high priority.
Husayn's commitment to self-officiation fosters an environment of empowerment and respectful conflict resolution, and its emphasis on spirit of the game celebrates respect, open-mindedness, and genuine relationship-building between competitors. Many of the values that serve as pillars for the sport are values that are also essential for promoting social justice more broadly. More specifically, I also volunteer with AGE UP (All Girl Everything), a non-profit that promotes empowerment of young women of color through ultimate in Seattle's Southend. I try to bring some of the values and points of emphasis from that organization into the classroom including but not limited to: an awareness of how privilege, class, race, and gender impact ultimate and the world more broadly.”
