Meet our Water Safety Instructors
How long have you been teaching lessons?
About two years
Why did you want to become a WSI?
I began as an assistant and fell in love with teaching folks to swim.
What do you like about teaching lessons?
Everything, there is something so special about sharing the joy of accomplishment with my students. Every high-five, hug, and smile make this the most rewarding work I have ever done.
What is your most memorable teaching moment?
There are so many but I think the first time one of my adult students swam on her own wins. She came to us afraid of the water. About 3 to 4 lessons in she swam the length of the pool on her back. I kept asking her how she to to the end of the pool. She used every word she could think of except "swim". When I finally convinced her that she swam down there, we hollared and hugged. It was really special.
