Meet the Teachers at St Michael's Prep School

    I have always loved to swim, I just love the feeling of being in the water.

    I started both my boys swimming when they were 12 weeks old and found it to be a beautiful experience (they are 4 and 6 now and both adore the water too).

    I started with Puddle Ducks as a Poolside Assistant and then went on to do my teacher training the first chance I could.

    It’s an amazing job on so many levels; from seeing the babies relaxing in the water for the first time with their carers, to seeing Dippers achieve fully independent swims is just so fulfilling. I also love the fact that we not only teach children swimming techniques but also how to keep themselves safe in the water – I am so lucky to be able to do a job I love that also allows me so much time with my family.

    I have two children, a full-on mermaid and a mermaid-in-training... She just loves being in the water and I take them both swimming regularly as a fun activity, knowing that being able to swim is a really important life skill.

    My background is as an IT Trainer within the NHS for 10+ years, but more recently I've made the lifestyle choice to work on the deli counter at Waitrose! I have always thought that teaching these skills would be such a rewarding job so when the opportunity to become a Puddle Ducks teacher came up I jumped at the chance!

    I'm looking forward to teaching your little ones these skills and seeing them develop through safe, fun Puddle Ducks activities, making for lots of happy, confident water loving children.

    I look forward to meeting you and your little swimmers soon!
