Hi my name is chandler. I have been teaching swim lessons for almost 4 years with infants up to adults. I've also worked with children with special needs for over 3 years inside and outside the water. Outside the pool I worked in a preschool for two years as well as lots of babysitting. I attended CSN to work on my degree in early childhood education. I love teaching swimming because I love getting to see children grow into amazing, happy, and safe swimmers.

Hi, my name is Denver, I've been swimming since I was two years old, and have loved it ever since.I swam competitively with BCH for four years and swam for the UNLV men's swimming team. I have helped coach and teach young upcoming swimmers for two years now, and of taught an age range from 10-18, many not knowing how to swim. I also have experience teaching people with disabilities. I hope to bring the children I teach the same love of the water that I have.
