BIO

My name is Catherine. I just finished my second year of University. I am currently studying concurrent education (primary/junior division), with psychology as my major and a minor in geography. I have been swimming ever since I was about two months old. I have been teaching, and lifeguarding aquatic programs for about four years now. I bring a ton of knowledge and experience to the table. I am flexible, adaptive, and creative in my teaching approach, and take into account that every learner learns at different paces and in different ways. I always ensure my lessons are catered towards the individuals needs. I am always looking for new and exciting ways to ensure my lessons are progressive, safe, and fun for all!
