The safety turn—Humpty Dumpty makes it fun, and we’re learning a life-saving skill!

Diving for rings in a deep pool.

As a child, how did you feel about the water? 

I loved it! I swam at my aunt’s pool every summer.

Did you have any particular challenges or lack of confidence you needed to overcome to learn to swim well?

I was  overly-confident and tended to put myself in danger before I was a strong swimmer.

What is your favorite swim lesson activity to do with kids and why? 

I love helping kids increase their confidence in the water, so the most rewarding part of my job is when my swimmers reach their goals!
