Say hi to Maria! She is the treasure that we have found. Maria has lived in many places in Australia and she has finally found her place in Adelaide. She has been teaching Aqua classes for over ten years and to say she is good at it, is an understatement!
Everyone say hi to Alison. When Alison speaks about her Swimming teaching experience she says it all stems from a mid-life crisis in 2017 – that’s when her career in swimming started. Alison since then has been very busy working for the Department for Education Water Safety, children with disabilities as well as volunteering for the AWSOM Project in Vietnam in January 2020 where she was instructing water safety to Vietnamese children in My Tho City. We are lucky to have her!
Everyone meet Jackie. She has been with SOLS since the beginning. Jackie is loved by her students with her calm and loving approach. Not only does Jackie teach in the water, but she is also a Playgroup Coordinator, so it’s no wonder the children love her approach to teaching! Don’t be shy and say hello to Jackie!
Karen has been teaching for 25 years! She has had a passion for swimming ever since she was little, and this shows through her teaching. Karen has been with SOLS for just over a year and brings her son to SOLS for swimming lessons. He also has a love for the water, just like his mum. We are so thankful that we have passionate teachers like Karen! Make Karen feel welcome and send her a hi.
Sarah hasn’t been with SOLS for long, but she already feels like family. With her love of children and having a gorgeous boy of her own, it’s easy to see that Sarah knows what she’s doing.
