What has been your favorite swimming experience?
Teaching my son to swim was the best time I have had in water. We swam twice per week until he was about 3. By the time he was a toddler he was able to jump in and swim to the side using the flip to breath skill (under my supervision).

What was a great teaching moment in your career?
I started teaching a little guy that was afraid to get in. I was doing admin and saw him crying on the deck. I grabbed my suit and went to assist. He got in for 15 minutes the first day, and 25 minutes the next week. Helped him adjust back into a class and he is now a level 4.

Who was your favorite swim figure / hero growing up?

Why do you choose a career in aquatics over others?
Swimming is a life-saving skill, it is important to help children learn to be safe in and around water. And it is fun

Why do you like working at Bear Paddle?
It is a well organized business. The lesson plans are brilliant and are geared for success.
