Congratulations Melissa and thank you William R and mum - your words mean so much:
"William and I nominate Melissa
William started his swim journey with a different company where he was regularly ‘dunked’ resulting in him hating his face in the water.
Melissa has so much patience with him and he loves his lessons. He’s really starting to turn a corner with his swimming I'm sure he’ll put his face in soon. Melissa never forces anything and tries a lot of fun ways to encourage him.
Melissa has a friendly, personable manner and her lessons filled with smiles and laughs! Thanks Melissa! "
Melissa will now be a contender for the national Puddle Ducks Star Teacher award – good luck Melissa!!
Melissa teaches at Jury's Inn on a Monday evening, Tuesday morning, Wednesday afternoon and Sunday morning at Rose Cottage.
