Name: Caitlin

Been a Swimming Teacher for: I completed my Level II qualification in 2019

What made you want to be a teacher? I have grown up around swimming pools and with almost every member of my family having been lifeguards and swimming teachers, it was always my plan to be a teacher too.

What is your favourite skill to teach? My favourite skill to teach is Back crawl or Breaststroke.

Which stage do you think is the hardest? The stage I think is the hardest to teach is Ducklings.

Have you got a funny swimming story? When I was younger I would have races with my mum - she was always faster than me so to try and cheat I would pull on her ankles in an attempt to slow her down or put her off. It never worked.

Where in the world would you like to swim? Blue Lagoon, Iceland is top of my bucket list.

Tell me something interesting about you? I also work at a secondary school as an Learning Support Assistant, where I work with children with additional needs.
