I am a former open water lifeguard from the beaches in Destin, Florida. Ive worked with adults and kids in a Jr. lifeguarding program. For the last 5 years I have been a professional lifeguard and athlete in the US Lifeguard Association. My Favorite aspect of teaching, is to help others acquire new skills. I love being active.

Hello! I have been teaching swim lessons for a little over three years now and it is by far my favorite job I have ever had! I am CPR certified by the American Heart Association and I am also a nursing student. I was on a competitive swim team for a little over 4 years, so I ham very familiar with all the strokes. I am currently attending the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas and I love it. Teaching swim lessons is awesome because I get to work with kids. It makes me so happy seeing them progress throughout the summer. I want to make sure that every child knows how to be safe in the water and has a basic understanding of swimming. I have taught all ages up to 8 years.

Hello! I have been teachings kiddos how to swim for the past three years and I LOVE it!! I began working for a community pool in Tarrant county and then began teaching with Happy Swimmers. I teach all ages, but 3-5 year olds are my specialty. I think it is important for the child and instructor to create a relationship of trust between each other through fun and games while learning to swim safely.
Lifeguarding for Happy Swimmers is the best job I have ever had! I enjoy keeping the kids (and adults) safe and having fun while everyone enjoys the party! My guard history includes summer camp for two years, community pool, and YMCA for three years. NowI guard the campus pool at Tarleton State.
Home areas: Fort Worth, Dallas, Grand Prairie, Arlington
As a swimmer of 18 years, I have hands on experience in the sport. I competed as a division 1 athlete at Texas A&M at the national level and international level. I have been teaching swim lessons for nearly 8 years, and have been coaching competitive swimmers for 5. I have some experience working with high school, and college level swimmers. I’m great with children, and love sharing my knowledge of the sport. I am CPR and First Aid certified, as well as coaches safety certified. I specialize in backstroke, but am capable of teaching and conditioning all four strokes. Fun Fact: I will be attending NYU to earn my masters in Art Therapy.
I’m your Region’s Manager of Swim Instructors. Contact me through the website contact form, for anything swim instructor related once swim lessons have begun with your instructor.
A little more about me… 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 is 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. Welcome to Happy Swimmers! I am happy to help.

Yumi and Jere were wonderful lifeguards when they guarded our end of year pool party on Wednesday June 11 from 11-2. They were in touch with me, were on time and prepared, and were very responsible and knowledgeable. I was so happy to be able to put two adults in charge of our fourth grade class party.
Based on my experience with Yumi Temple and her cohort Jere, I would highly recommend Happy Swimmers.
Thank you for a wonderful experience. So happy we used your business.
Hi Jenn.. wow today was really scary. I had to use my first aid skills on my mom! We work at the same preschool & she had an allergic reaction & went into shock! I did everything I remembered until the paramedics came.. I really can’t thank you enough for teaching me everything I needed to know!
Everything about my experience with Happy Swimmers has been amazing! From the scheduling to the fantastic teacher they sent for my 5 and 6 year old. The instructor, Emma, had to contend with 2 very different personalities along with 2 different levels of swimming experience. She was more than equipped to deal with that and gave each child unparalleled support, encouragement and instruction. I highly recommend this service to all parents that want to give their child a great experience in being water safe!
We have three kids ages 7, 4, and 2 & 1/2. This was our second year having Happy Swimmers, with instructor Trisha Commons, come teach our kids (the two oldest) to swim. I tried another company the year before I tried Happy Swimmers and although the kids learned swim safety, they were bored and did not learn how to enjoy the pool. Trisha got our son, who did not really like swimming, having fun and by the end of last year could swim the entire length of the pool on his own.
Trisha is great with the kids and is flexible in her teaching style to work with different personalities. She is able to get the kids confident in their abilities and teaches them how to swim, but also teaches them how to have fun! I will definitely be asking Happy Swimmers and Trisha to teach the kids again next year.
I have a toddler and a pool and wanted to make sure my son learned water safety. After taking some group classes last summer, I knew I wanted more one-on-one attention at our home. This summer I reviewed several in-home companies and was impressed with Happy Swimmers approach of water safety.
Trish worked with my stubborn 2-yr old 2-3 times a week. Within the first lesson he knew how to climb out of the pool and to ask permission before getting in. Although our goal was to get him water comfortable more than “swimming”, he indeed learned to swim within a few weeks. We extended our lessons and really appreciated Trish’s approach. We will sign up again next summer. Many of our friends with children happened to be present on several lessons and I expect they will also sign up next summer as well.
Hired a happy swimmers for private life guard for a party for over 200 people at my house. The lifeguard was great. She called to confirm before, came on time, and stayed later then we originally signed up because the party went over. She also showed up on time despite there being a black out that because of storms the day before. I highly recommend Happy Swimmers.
