Who I Am  

A Little About Me

My first job was as a swim instructor at my high school. They had showed me what teaching was like but did not show me how to teach. Once I worked at The Y I had been showed how to teach and fell in love with it. Although, teaching swim lessons were no easy feat. It has taken me three years to master it and I am still learning. I started off as an assistant, teaching at my high school. As it was not my own lesson, I observed rather than engaged. Once I started working at The Y everything changed. First, I shadowed, then I taught my own class.

Interesting Factoid

I can play nine instruments, although I’m not proficient in all of them I can play a tune or two.
