BethSwim England Level 2 Teacher
I have worked as a swimming teacher with ABC since qualifying in 2002 and can't even begin to think how many children I have taught in that time and how much I have learnt about teaching. This is a brilliant job. There is nothing more rewarding than watching both children and adults of all ages learning such a beneficial skill. The reason I have stayed so long at ABC is that we do it so well, with a great team of teachers and assistants in a safe and fun environment.
I have recently given up my other teaching work, so I can spend more time pursuing some of my hobbies. I swim regularly at Masters' Level and compete occasionally. I also have a big stack of books to read and a few knitting projects I want to do.
