It is Team Member Tuesday, and today’s team member is Kristy! You will also be able to find her profile under our Facebook album titled “Team Member Profiles.”
Kristy has been teaching swimming lessons with OSA since March of 2015. She teaches beginner and intermediate swimming lessons, as well as parent-tot classes at our OKC location. Kristy is known for her gentleness, her calming presence and her servanthood. She makes all of her kiddos feel very comfortable and is always working to tailor our method to each individual child for the best possible swimming experience and results. She is so sweet, and her swimming lessons have been likened to taking a trip to Grandma’s house! Kristy has a heart of gold, and we are very fortunate to have her on our team!
WHY DO YOU LOVE BEING A SWIM TEACHER?
I love teaching children to swim, because I love seeing their happy faces as they learn to swim, build confidence, learn to respect and be safe around water, and learn to love swimming. Also, I love teaching swimming to children, because I love children!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HOBBY OUTSIDE OF THE POOL?
My favorite hobby away from the pool is to spend time with family and friends, play disc golf, go kayaking, and go hiking.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE/BOOK?
My favorite books are The Bible and The Book of Mormon. One of my favorite movies is The Princess Bride.
WHAT 3 THINGS WOULD YOU BRING WITH YOU TO A DESERTED ISLAND?
One of the three “things” I would bring with me to a deserted island would be my brand new husband! Another would be a small airplane with plenty of gas so that we could go visit our children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and other family members. The third thing is my testimony of Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father and of their love for their children. An unusual answer, but it is where my heart is right now!
TELL US A FUNNY STORY ABOUT SOMETHING THAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE POOL.
When one of my 4-year-old students was working on his skill practice. We would do 3 practices, and then I would tell him it was his turn to pick something to do.We called it “Josh* time.” This goes on for a few lessons when one day he comes to the pool and says today the whole lesson is going to be “Josh time!”
