Shinead Hailstone

Swimming Instructor

I have been a Learn to Swim Teacher since 2014 and am also qualified to teach babies and toddlers. 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 love watching the kids grow with confidence and their skills each week as they become great little swimmers. I am a big believer in Learn to Swim for all ages and abilities.

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! 
My family:
I live locally with my mum, sister Kiera, who is also an Instructor, and my cat Lilly. I visit my dad in Newcastle regularly.
