Faces of FOSS: Kristin Koester

Kristin Koester
Office Manager and Teacher
Sun Prairie, WI

How long have you worked for FOSS? 

More than 5 years—I started back in 2007, took a break to be a nurse and happily came back in 2016!

What is your favorite skill to teach and why?  

So many to choose from, but I love anything requiring flippers and love teaching side breath.

What is your personal favorite water activity?


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

Couldn’t get enough of it! I was always diving for rings and jumping off the diving board any chance I got!

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

Fortunately, swimming came easy to me. The only thing that I can always keep improving is my kick rate!

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

Chop-chop timbers and zooms are so much fun and so beneficial.
