Ryan M.

What was a great teaching moment in your career?
The greatest moment was teaching a semi-private class to a special needs student who was half-blind and deaf. They were deathly afraid of the water and after about a month in a half, his mom took them to the beach for the first time in his life (he was12 years old). He was able to enjoy the water and be safe!

Who was your favorite swim figure / hero growing up?
My hero was my father because he reminded of superman. He came from nothing and was able to give my family everything we ever wanted. He was Mr. Fix-It, and always working.

Why do you choose a career in aquatics over others?
Because of water rescue. I've had to deliver bad news to so many people during my tenure. I Didn't want more casualties and wanted to lessen the drowning statistics.

Why do you like working at Bear Paddle?
I like working with kids and it helps to achieve my personal goals in lowering the drowning statistics. It also allows me to teach students to be able to enjoy the water as much as I do!

What’s your favorite swim stroke?
Favorite stroke is combat side stroke.

What is your favorite moment at Bear Paddle so far as an SSM?
Seeing the progression of a water adjuster, or someone who is very afraid of the water, progress into a confident and safe swimmer!
