Melissa & Stacey
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 also still swim with Alex but he’s now a Little Dipper and it’s our favourite hobby.
I teach Baby and Pre School on a Tuesday at Rose Cottage.
Hello I'm Stacey and I've worked for Puddle Ducks for 3.5 years now after I seen the job advertised on Facebook and have never looked back. I started as a poolside assistant, then went on to do my Swim Academy training followed closely by Baby and Pre School then Aquanatal.
