What My Students Have Taught Me

What My Students Have Taught Me

I grew up through Swimtastic Swim School. As a kid, I went there for swimming lessons. That’s right. I used to be the little girl on the steps splashing her teacher and thinking she could swim, when in reality, she would only sink. I used to be the kid who was so excited to go down the slide she could hardly contain herself. Now, years later, I’m still at Swimtastic, but I hold a different role. I’m no longer that little girl smiling on the steps. I still have the smile, I’m just no longer sitting on the steps. I’m the one teaching this time. Instead of being instructed, I’m the one doing the instructing. And, although I’m the teacher, I learn a lot from my students as well. Throughout my time at Swimtastic I’ve learned the value of patience, the power of perseverance and the importance of positivity among so many other things.

Swimtastic is All About Relationships:
Do You Know What the Teachers Think?

When you think of Swimtastic what comes to mind? Do you just think of swim lessons or another stop in your busy week? From our customers' view, it is a neat place to take your kids for swim lessons. This is where your kids are going to learn to swim. This is the place where they are going to get over their fear of water. But, have you seen the other side of it? Do you know what the teachers think and how much they are really a part of your kids' lives, or even how much your kids have impacted us? Swimtastic is all about building healthy relationships - with the community, with the water and swimming, with one another, and among ourselves. Those relationships start with your kids but they are also a huge part of supporting the school's friendly, family atmosphere.

To That One College Job – It's Not Just Teaching Kids to Swim

To That One College Job – It's Not Just Teaching Kids to Swim

Two years…I knew it that day sitting in my interview for another part-time position. In my early college years, I felt like I was collecting part-time jobs. Being in school, I knew the jobs were just temporary, so two years seemed like long enough to enjoy a fun one before entering the real world. Two years seemed like it would be long enough to teach kids how to swim at Swimtastic Swim School.
