Meet Our Team
Hello there, water enthusiasts and future swimmers! I’m Ms. Amy, the proud owner and lead swim teacher at Aqua Smiles. With an insatiable passion for teaching and an unwavering dedication to the science and psychology behind learning to swim, I’ve crafted an environment where aquatic education transforms into an enriching journey of growth and self-discovery.
My connection with the water started early in life, and my journey has been one of continuous learning and exploration. Through years of experience, training, and an unquenchable thirst for understanding the intricacies of swimming, I’ve honed my craft by creating a progressive curriculum, to not only teach strokes and techniques but also to comprehend the emotional and cognitive aspects of the learning process.
For me, swimming isn’t just a profession—it’s a way of life. It’s the reason I go to bed thinking about swimming and wake up eager to dive right in. Every lesson, every breakthrough, and every smile are a testament to the profound impact that swimming education can have. With each stroke we teach, we’re shaping futures and instilling a love for the water that will last a lifetime.
