I am currently in my first year of sixth form studying philosophy, health and social care and English. I completed my Level 1 and 2 swimming teachers course in August following on in my Mum’s footsteps; she has taught swimming all her life. I have always been a lover of swimming from an early age, developing my skills as much as I could. Being able to watch children develop their swimming brings me great joy. That’s why being a teacher is such a rewarding job, giving a child the encouragement and confidence to develop a lifelong skill.
