Melissa & Kimberley
Hello I'm Melissa, I started swimming at Puddle Ducks when my little one was 4 months old. I joined a Monday night Floaties class at High Tunstall and fell in love with the class straight away. Swimming with Alex was always something I wanted to do. As he got older and started a Splashers class, the end of my maternity leave was looming over me, I knew going back to my old job wasn’t the most ideal situation for me. Then I saw an advert on the Tees Valley Puddle Ducks page for an admin role and knew I had to apply. I was very fortunate that Alison saw potential in me and after some persuading I eventually accepted a teaching role.
I started teaching Swim Academy in the Autumn of 2016 and went straight off to train for Baby and Pre School at the beginning of 2017. I have never looked back and have loved every second of teaching. I teach Baby and Pre School on a Monday.
Hi I’m Kimberley, I currently poolside and teach Swim Academy. I have two girls which is how I came to work at Puddle Ducks.
My journey started as a customer in January 2016 when I bought my girls, then a Little Dipper and to one of the franchise's first Beginners Swim Academy class .
I finally became a poolside in July 2016 and spent a year in this role before deciding to become a Swim Academy teacher completing my training in August 2017.
I teach Swim Academy at High Tunstall on a Monday.
