This summer I have been super busy teaching swimming lessons every weekday to precious children. I am a certified WSI instructor. I was certified 3 years ago and I LOVE teaching these precious babies how to swim. I mostly teach 3 years old and up and I usually teach private lessons. I have to turn away so many people because I book up on lessons towards the end of May, beginning of April. This summer I taught one more week then my normal amount of time, but now I am finished and can finally concentrate on my own summer enjoyment!
Here is just a few pictures/slideshow that I made on the iMovie app to show you how my summer has been going…It is less than a 1:30, so I hope you enjoy!
I have loved teaching these sweet babies how to swim this summer! It is such a joy to see the parents watch their babies improve year after year! They all work so hard each year. Swimming can be a very scary process, if not handled the correct way.
I am not the type of teacher to push the children in to learn how to swim. My motto this summer has been PATIENCE and PERSISTENCE! If you are patient with a child, they will eventually come around to learning how to swim. I have seen it happen over and over again! Trust the process!
Question: How many of you out there teach swimming lessons? How long do you teach during the summer?
