What is your favorite part of teaching swim?

What I enjoy most about teaching kids to swim is being able to see them progress and how excited they are when they reach their goals.

Why do you think it's important for every child to know how to swim?

Learning how to swim is very important to a child’s safety.  Most people assume that they can take steps to keep their children safe in and around the water but you can never be too safe.  Teaching them to swim will give them that extra advantage.

How long have you been teaching at PDX SportsCenter?

I have been teaching swim lessons at PDX SportsCenter since the program started two years ago and have been teaching soccer since I started working here in 2011.
