It is Team Member Tuesday, and today’s team member is Lyda! You will also be able to find her profile under our Facebook album titled “Team Member Profiles.”
Lyda is our newest swim instructor! She began training with Megan on November 6th to teach beginner swimming lessons. Lyda is currently training at our OKC location but may transition to teach swimming lessons at our Edmond location. We are looking forward to discovering Lyda’s unique contributions to teaching and to the team as she continues to grow and learn our survival swim method. We are already enjoying having her as a part of our team and are so excited to have her on board!
WHY DO YOU LOVE BEING A SWIM TEACHER?
I enjoy the kids’ enthusiasm, energy, smiles, and desire to learn. I also enjoy their successes, because their successes are your successes as well. I look forward to teaching and assisting different families. To know the knowledge the child is attaining will save their lives is profound and amazing!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HOBBY OUTSIDE OF THE POOL?
I love running and am currently formulating an ultra running plan for a race either in 2018 or 2019. I also enjoy sewing and photography, both of which I am not able to do much of these days, but when I can, I do benefit from doing it.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE/BOOK?
So many for different reasons, but 101 Dalmatians, the animated version, tops them all. However, a close 2nd is Beauty and the Beast, the animated version as well.
WHAT 3 THINGS WOULD YOU BRING WITH YOU TO A DESERTED ISLAND?
A toothbrush, music, and books.
TELL US A FUNNY STORY ABOUT SOMETHING THAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE POOL.
I am still in training, so I don’t have a story yet, but from what I have heard from the teachers I’m working with, I’m sure it will not be long! 🙂
