Swim Lesson Instructor Bios
I have been swimming competitively since I was 9 years old, I have lifeguarded at various facilities for 5 years, and started teaching swimming lessons here in January of 2020. I’ve been teaching various skills, many related to water for 4 years. I love being outside, hiking, swimming, or boating. I am a French Teaching major here at Weber and hope to teach French in either Middle or High schools after finishing my degree. I love working with all levels of swimmers; new and experienced.
I have done swim-team and been swimming for most of my life. I’ve been teaching swim lessons and lifeguarding for 7 years now. At the pool I worked at in California, I helped start a pilot program called “Sharks and Mermaids”, where we gave free private lessons for kids on the autism spectrum. I’m originally from California, and I am in the X-ray tech program here at Weber State University.
