I started teaching in 2006, by chance really! I was taking my eldest son to lessons and heard that the Swim School he was attending were looking for more teachers, I enquired how to become a Swimming Teacher and the rest as they say is history!
I have 3 children, Rhys, Kyra & Max. Rhys and Kyra are good swimmers and Max is getting there!!
I love seeing the children developing from non-swimmers to swimmers, it is such a lovely sight when a child realises they can swim without the use of arms bands or other aids.
I have been swimming since I was 4yrs old and I have a passion for swimming and sport.
My mum is Michelle Foyster the owner of Seachelles Swim School, I became a helper for Mum at the age of 13years assisting the teachers with the groups. I have recently qualified as a Level 1 Swimming Teacher and hope to complete the Level 2 qualification very soon. I enjoy teaching the children and have worked with children of all ages and abilities, some of which also have learning difficulties or disabilities.
I have been swimming most of my life, I have completed my ASA Stage 10 Swimming, Stage 10 Synchronised Swimming & Rookie Lifeguard. I also enjoy most water sports.
I was so excited when I got this amazing opportunity to help other people enjoy swimming as much as I do, as I would definitely like to become a swimming teacher when I am old enough to take the relevant qualifications.
