I have been teaching swim lessons since I was 17 years old. No one needed to tell me the importance of learning how to swim and what an impact it can have in a child’s life. However, having a child changes how you view everything.
At a recent swim class while my daughter was in the water with her dad, I noticed a woman also watching the Parent-N-Me class in session and introduced myself. Instantly I recognized a familiar accent. Phyl was visiting her daughter’s family from the Isle of Man, and was the great-grandmother of student, 20-month-old Alfie. It is relatively rare to meet anyone from that part of the U.K. since the small island in the Irish Sea between Ireland and England only has a population of about 88,500.
A lot of people ask me why I love what I do…Why? Because, I am passionate about making a difference in children’s lives. 6 years ago, I realized my passion was helping children develop, and the impact it has had on my life has been transformational.
