Congratulations Sarah on winning our Star Teacher award for Spring 2019 💦
Thank you to Harriet at Twirly Girl Photography for being our guest judge. This is why Harriet thought Sarah should win:
"This teachers sounds like she really goes above and beyond for her swimmers and parents. She puts them both at ease which I think is really important.
I love the fact she notices the small details with the children too, having two children I know how proud they are to have something new and of someone notices it makes it million times more exciting for them!
My children have been a swimming for around 18months now and I’ve seen children “quit” because they don’t like the teacher, so I know how important it is to have an amazing teacher like this! Well done!"
This brilliant nomination came from Jon, Penny & Beatrice who swim with Sarah at our Minster Lovell pool:
"Sarah makes every lesson fun and full of happiness. Not only is she an excellent teacher, giving both parents and children confidence to enjoy swimming together safely, but she goes above and beyond to celebrate individual children’s achievements, and to make everyone feel special. For example, knowing how much my daughter loves music, if she’s grumpy in the pool, Sarah always ensures that activities include singing to keep her calm and focused on the activity. She takes an interest in every child in her care, always noticing small details, like when they’ve had a haircut, or have a new swimsuit (!) and is always full of smiles and encouragement as they progress through their swimming journey."
