Meet the teachers at Oak House Pool

    Rebecca Lord

    Baby & Pre-school teacher

    I joined the Puddle Ducks team in 2016 and  I absolutely love teaching children a life saving skill.

    I have always taken my little girls swimming and have seen first hand the benefits. It is great to see children confident and enjoying themselves in the water.

    When i'm not working, I can be found enjoying a tub of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, yum! 

  • Claire Tingley

    Baby & Pre-school teacher

  • Sarah Priestly

    Sarah Priestly

    Baby & Pre-school teacher

    joined Puddle Ducks as a Poolside Assistant in October 2016, but decided to take the 'plunge' and train to become a teacher. I qualified and began teaching classes at Heatherwood School, DW Fitness Selby and Aegir School in 2018 and I love it! The best part of my job is seeing the children I teach gain confidence in the water and progress to safe and happy swimmers. 

    A mum of two myself, the whole family love swimming and generally having fun in the water. We love to spend time at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park and being outdoors - I have three dogs (and five tortoises!).  I also love gardening when I have the time. 

  • Emily Hembry

    Swim Academy teacher

    I joined Puddle Ducks as a Teacher in September 2018, after bringing both of my sons to their classes for the last three years - since they were 12 weeks old. They absolutely loved their classes and so did I! 

    I teach Swim Academy classes at Willow Lodge, Bubwith and Oak House, Tickhill. 

    Prior to joining Puddle Ducks, I was a driving instructor, however swimming has always been a big part of my life and I have taught children to swim for most of my adult life. 

    Apart from loving being in the water and swimming in general, the best bit is seeing the enjoyment children get out of swimming, as well as learning a valuable life skill. There is no better job satisfaction than seeing a child who may be nervous in the water, progress to swimming independently.

    I am a mum of two boys aged 1 and 3, so pretty much all of my time is spent with them. I love to go to new places and do lots of activities with them. I've always loved to swim, including swimming competitively in open water, so working for Puddle Ducks is my perfect job!
