"Passing on the love of swimming to the next generation"

I have been teaching Humanities to 11-16 year olds for 14 years and I am looking forward to a career change to combine my two passions of teaching and swimming in the gorgeous facility at the Pool Barn.

I have been swimming at every opportunity for as long as I can remember. I love the experience of being in water. Since synchronised swimming at school I have swum in the lakes of the Lake District, up mountains in Scotland, between the islands of the Dalmation coast as well as off every beach I find myself on; yes I am one of those people you see on Boxing Day swimming in the English Channel. And of course I am a regular in Rutland water.

I swam with all four of my own children and two of them became keen club swimmers and life guards as teenagers. I hope to pass on the same love of the water to the next generation.
