Learn to Swim Teacher

I have been a Learn to Swim Teacher since 2014 and am also qualified to teach babies and toddlers. I’ve worked at Little Fish Swim School since early 2016 and work mostly with younger age groups but also do stroke development work with older children.

I am passionate about my job and love going to work every day. I am passionate with what I teach each week to ensure the kids in my class are learning and progressing their skills. I am a big believer in Learn to Swim for all ages and abilities.

What I love most about what I do: I love watching the kids grow with confidence and their skills each week as they become great little swimmers.

When I’m not in the pool you’ll find me: Going to the football or watching football, being outdoors 

My perfect weekend: Spending the whole weekend on a cruise – I can only dream!
