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 25 years ago.
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, ski-ing, spending time with family and friends, rides on Penelope Pashley, my bike!
My favourite food is: Anything that someone else has cooked for me!
An interesting fact about me: When I was preparing for my wedding (37 years ago) I attended jewellery making classes and I made my own platinum wedding ring, my husband's white gold wedding ring and all of the bridesmaids' silver necklaces.
