MEET OUR TEACHERS ....

Hi, I'm Jan!  I am JH2O's Swim School Principal and am also part of the teaching team.

 

How I got into teaching:  I was inspired to teach while watching my childrens' swimming lessons 30 years ago.  I qualified as an ASA Level 1 Teacher and a year later gained my ASA Level 2 Swimming Teacher qualification and  theASA Advanced Teacher certificate.  Further aquatic qualifications followed over the years, including ASA Aquafit Teacher, ASA Adult & Child Teacher, ASA Level 1 Synchronized Swimming Teacher and ASA Disabilities Teacher.

 

I love teaching because:  Every pupil, every lesson, every day is different and after 25 years of teaching I still find it the most rewarding and enjoyable job ever.

 

My favourite stroke is:  Breaststroke, because although it is complex and challenging, it is satisfying to teach a pupil how to master and enjoy swimming Breaststroke.

 

My hobbies are:  Travel, spending time with family and friends, discovering new restaurants, rides on Penelope Pashley, my bike!

 

My favourite food is:  Anything that someone else has cooked for me!

 

An interesting fact about me:  I've been married for almost 40 years.

How I got into teaching:  I started assisting with Jan while I was at university and enjoyed it so much, I went on to do my ASA Level 1 and Level 2 teaching qualifications.

 

I love teaching because: I love to see the children progres from non-swimmers to confident, independent swimmers.

 

My favourite stroke is:  Breaststroke.

 

My hobbies are:  Swimming, dog walking, camping.

 

My favourite food is:  My grandma's spaghetti bolognaise!

 

An interesting fact about me:  I have always loved swimming and could swim by the age of two.  I have a dog called Lucy.

I'm Liz ... hello! 


How I got into teaching:  I enjoyed swimming and when a local club needed help, I did my training with them - the rest is history!

Hi, I'm Maria


How I got into teaching:  I began lifeguarding at 17 and undertook my Level 1 Swimming Teaching qualification soon afterwards with a fellow lifeguard.  This progressed to my Level 2 Teaching qualification and a lot more aquatic qualifications since then! 

 

I love teaching because:  I love seeing the enjoyment on pupil's faces when they achieve something new or improve on a previous achievement. There is a real buzz in that!

 

My favourite stroke is: Front Crawl.  This is both my favourite stroke to teach and swim. When swam correctly it looks effortlessly graceful.

 

My hobbies are:  I love swimming, running, gardening and cooking as a family as my young children join in too.

 

My favourite food: Chocolate, I have a real sweet tooth!

 

An interesting fact about me:  I have recently taken on an allotment and eating home grown food is so good!
