I have been working in the recreation field and teaching swimming for over 35 years. I am a grandfather of 3, two boys and one girl. I hold certifications in AED, CPR & First Aid, LGT, LGI, and WSI.  I enjoy teaching children of all levels. I particularly love working with children who want to take swimming to the next level, those who are interested in joining their High School or USS Swim Team or neighborhood swim club.  Over the years, I have also worked with special needs children and find it quite rewarding. I have also coached children in basketball, baseball, football, and umpires little league baseball games and officiates basketball games
