Learn to Swim Teacher

I have been a swim teacher for over 11 years. When I originally started training, I had no idea what it involved, I just knew that I loved the water and children, so I thought it was the ideal job. I’ve loved it ever since. I’m now studying my Bachelor of Teaching in Special Education.

What I love most about what I do: I love the relationships that I build with the kids I teach and help them form a respect for the water while having fun doing it. It brings me comfort and joy to know that I am helping children to be safe in and around the water, teaching them skills they can utilise to stay safe.

When I’m not in the pool you’ll find me: I’ll be studying, at the beach or catching up with friends. I love being social so love hanging out with friends and family having a few drinks.

My perfect weekend: It would involve sand, waves or water, music and relaxing with friends or family.
