    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.

    Hi, I’m Jessica and I am a mum to a girl she’s 7 and a boy aged 3, and I am getting married in July 2020.

    My Puddle Ducks journey to becoming a swimming teacher started in June 2019 when a current employee told me a job had came up at her work. I went along to a meeting to learn more about the role, and it was the perfect job for me; to teach children how to swim and build relationships with them and the parents!

    My hobbies are doing pageants, where I will raise money for local charities to help people from babies to adults, and spending time with my family making memories!

    I poolside at Rose Cottage on a Tuesday.

    Hi I'm Kirsty. My Puddle Ducks Journey began in Late September 2020 as a poolside assistant. I will be completing my baby and pre school teacher training in January 2021 and hope to go on to also teach swim academy. I know how much I valued my swim teacher when my kids were small and can’t wait to give that experience to other mums and dads.
    My hobbies are family time, kayaking, meals out and the movies.

    Hi I’m Kimberley, I currently poolside and teach Swim Academy. I have two girls aged 6 and 9 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.
