Kennedy Teel, Lifeguard and Private Swim Instructor

I have 2 years Swim Instruction, Coaching, & lifeguard experience.

As a swim instructor, I teach kids to not only learn how to swim but to love swimming. I want them to be safe in the water and not depend on anyone else to help them. What I enjoy most about teaching anyone how to swim is seeing their progress and seeing them start to really love swimming and enjoy being in water. I love taking a kid who was originally scared and timid in the water and getting them to absolutely love swimming and love coming to swim lessons. Teaching swim lessons is a very fulfilling job and I love feeling like I have an impact on a child’s life. I still remember my swim instructor from when I first learned how to swim and I hope that the kids I teach will remember me and all I teach them. I have taught over 100 people ranging all different age groups, from as young as 6 months old to adults over 50. I was also a part time swim coach for a summer league team and a year-round team. I’m great with teaching freestyle and backstroke and moderate on teaching the harder strokes breaststroke and butterfly. I have also taught some more experienced kids how to do dives and flip turns. I have taken kids from fearing the water to swimming all the way across a 25-meter pool with no help.

Lauren Kelley, Private Swim Instructor and Lifeguard for Hire

Austin

Hey ya’ll! My name is Lauren and I am happy to serve you here at Happy Swimmers. Along with being a certified American Red Cross Lifeguard, I also am a swim instructor. I have taught swim lessons for two years at a public pool. The age group I have experience teaching with is toddler through school age. However I can assist any age group, kids are just so fun! Seeing kids progress is what makes my job fun. I love to see children grow in their skills and become comfortable in the water.

A fun fact about me– I know American Sign Language! Maybe I can teach you a few signs!

Hello everyone! My name is Lauren and I have been an American Cross Certified Lifeguard for 3 years. I began my lifeguarding experience at a public pool and progressed from there to working for an after school program. Now, I am here at Happy Swimmers.

I have been a lifeguard for 3 years.


My goal as a lifeguard is your child/children’s safety. I take a preventative approach and try to stop the hazard before it happens. However, real life doesn’t always work like that; rest assured I am trained to act and do the best I can to ensure patrons’ safety.

My favorite part of lifeguarding is seeing everyone have fun. Swimming and water activities are one of the best parts of summer.

A fun fact about me–I attend The University of Texas at Austin and am majoring in Speech Language Pathology with a minor in American Sign Language.

Madison Green, Swim Instructor, Lifeguard

South Austin

This will be my fourth summer teaching swim lessons. I started giving lessons as a freshmen in high school and have had a lot of experience since then. I really love teaching kids to swim, seeing them learn to love the water and seeing how much they grow in their ability over the course of their lessons is really amazing to see. A fun fact about me is that I was born in Canada! P.S. I always bring suckers with me as a prize for the end of every lesson 🙂

My Swim Instructor Bio: Hello I’ve been actively teaching swim lessons for six years and enjoy this more than any other profession I’ve ever been involved in. There is nothing better than doing what you love for a living and being able to teach and share it with others. I get to teach a child; learn life long skills that last a life time, as well as safety and the joy of the water. I’m always amazed at how students learn so much in a short period of time. It also fun to watch them, “Strut Their Stuff” when they become confident at what they have learned. I started swimming at age 3 and have never enjoyed anything more than the water. I have been a competitive swimmer, PADI diver and Coast Guard Auxiliary member for many years.

I am also Manager of Swim Instructors in All Areas except California–AZ,TX, DC, and NY. Contact me through the website contact form, for anything swim instructor related once swim lessons have begun with your instructor.

Noah, Private Swim Instructor and Lifeguard

Taylor, TX

The summer camp I worked at swim lessons for our younger campers. Their skill level ranged from “never been in a pool” to “part of a swim league back home”. Over the course of my five years there, I learned which strategies work best for different experience levels and ages. I have been a lifeguard in central Texas for five years. Much of my time lifeguarding has been in a camp environment with a both a pool and lake. During my tenure at this camp, I rose to the position of Lake Director. My reason for lifeguarding has always been to keep people safe while they have the best time possible in the water. I grew up near the beach and to me, water has always been synonymous with happiness and fun. That is why I strive to keep everyone safe while they have fun in the sun.

Typical communities I’ve served include Austin, Round Rock, Cedar Park, Georgetown, Pfluegerville.

Sydney Stolle, Private Swim Instructor & Lifeguard

Austin

Hi, I’m Sydney and I’m currently a sophomore at The University of Texas at Austin. Being by the water is my favorite place to be during the hot summers in Texas. I was a competitive swimmer for 14 years and still enjoy swimming laps in my free time.
For the past five summers, I have been a private and group swim instructor for ages 3 to 20. I have a wide spectrum of experience from children who are afraid to get in the water to competitive swimmers who need stroke instruction.
I enjoy building trust with the children I’ve taught and allowing them to progress into confident swimmers. I believe encouragement goes a long way and try to make the learning process as enjoyable as swimming is to me!

For the past five summers, I’ve lifeguarded at a city pool and for private events. When life guarding, I work to maintain a fun and safe environment for everyone inside and around the pool.
Because I am constantly scanning the pool and assessing the swimmers abilities, I saved lives each summer that I was working and prevented more accidents by enforcing the rules of the pool as well as general pool safety procedures. Last summer I was head life guard for our staff before retiring from my hometown pool. I take pride in my job and strive to continue to be a dependable life guard.

I serve the Austin communities of Austin, Pflugerville, Round Rock, among others.

I have been teaching swim lessons for 2 years now, and I have been a lifeguard for 3 years. The main thing I enjoy about teaching lessons is the improvement and growth of the children that I teach.

Swim Instructor Bio: Hi Y’all! I’ve spent many summers both lifeguarding and offering swim instruction to individuals and groups. I love supporting kiddos in growing and learning through in-water experience that swimming can be fun and also a great way to face fears and develop courageousness through skill development. I swim year-round and enjoy playing water-polo; I’m also a yoga instructor and private health-chef that loves to share tips and treats 🙂 My sweet pup often joins me on my adventures! Looking forward to connecting with you soon 🙂

Lifeguard Bio: I’ve been a lifeguard in both private settings and busy public pools — what I love the most about lifeguarding events is seeing how much fun people are having and knowing that I am there to ensure everyone’s safety. I believe I was a Mermaid in another life and I love to swim!
