  • Why did you join Mini Swimmers?

Elaine was a friend of mine and fellow swimming teacher, so when she asked me to join the team I jumped at the chance. She is a great boss!

  • What’s your favourite thing about teaching?

I love all aspects of teaching but especially when a child succeeds at swimming independently for the first time.

  • Do you remember learning to swim?

When I was taught to swim it wasn’t much fun and very strict. I’m glad things have changed and wish there had been classes like this when I was little!

I like meeting up with friends for food, and going to baby groups with my youngest, Frankie.
