Swimtastic Stories: From Competition to Teaching

I’ve swum throughout my childhood, learning how to float in the lake when I was young, taking lessons until I was 8, and then transitioning to swim team after that. When I turned 16, I started teaching lessons, and now I’m 18 and still teaching lessons. Being a swim teacher is the best job that I never knew I wanted until I started!

Practices had grown monotonous, and I dreaded the anxiety of meets. My saving grace was teaching. Being in the water with the kids always brought a smile to my face and reminded me that I loved the water and that I actually just love swimming – the feeling of your hands cutting through the water, being able to feel your speed change with the slightest change to your kick or stroke or the satisfaction of a good flip turn.
