As a child I absolutely hated swimming lessons!! I believe that this is why I feel it is so important that children enjoy their time in the pool and feel at ease in the water. Although I came to enroll on the swim teachers course by chance, in 2006, it is without doubt the best thing I ever did. I take immense enjoyment from my job; from seeing the joy swimming brings to children and also in helping them achieve the various awards on the ASA learn to swim pathway.
I am a mum of two young boys and therefore spend most of my time playing superheros and exploring the local woods and parks!
From childhood, I have always had a love of the water and swimming and I enjoy sharing my love of aquatics with the children. As well as being a swimming teacher, I also have nursery nursing qualifications which helps me to add some fun to my lessons, and gives me a special insight into baby and pre-school swimming.
I have been teaching swimming at various pools and leisure centres for the past 16 years. I have also taught and continue to teach swimming for a number of schools in the Charnwood area.
