What is your favorite part of working for FOSS?:

When kids get excited overcoming something they’ve never done before.

What is your personal favorite water activity? Why?

I love water slides. The twists and turns before being shot out into a pool have been some of my best memories as long as I can remember. Since I could first swim, I loved going down water slides.

Can you recount a student of yours who experienced a major “lightbulb” moment when you were with them? What was it? How did the child react? How did the parent react? What was your reaction?

Same day as I’m writing this, I had a student be able to swim with a side-breath for the first time ever. His smile was so wide it was like it was the best thing that had ever happened to him. I looked over to his mom and she had the proudest look on her face toward her son. That’s everything.
