Houston Swim Instructor
Private Swim Instructor
My swim instructing background goes back to my swimming days, where I trained for 10 years perfecting my strokes and technique. I taught swim lessons for a spring in High school, and thoroughly enjoyed it. My specialties include freestyle and backstroke technique, as well as basic techniques for young children. Fun fact about me: I’ve swam with sea turtles in Hawaii!
I have been lifeguarding for about a year now. My intention for guarding is to help create an environment that is the most fun, and safe, it can possibly be. My favorite part of lifeguarding would have to be seeing how much fun everyone is having in the pool on a hot summer day! Fun fact about myself: I swam for 10 years of my life, and hold a record in the 200 freestyle relay at my high school!
I serve the Houston communities of Sugar Land, Katy/Cinco Ranch, Pearland, and Bellaire, among others
I have 3 years of experience with kids ages 3-14, I always have a blast teaching kids how to swim because it’s my passion, my specialties is that I can communicate very well and I am bilingual, it’s always fun teaching new kids because I know it will help them in the long run to be safe, a fun fact about me is that I have a great personality.
Areas generally served include: Houston, Cypress, Katy, Jersey Village, Woodlands

Hi, my name is Glori. I started swimming before I could walk and fell in love with the water. I began swimming competitively at age 6 and did that through high school. I have also life guarded and taught swim lessons for 15 years. I love teaching others to swim and hope to share that love of the water with others. I also teach preschool during the week. I have taught kids and adults and individuals with special needs. I love swimming and want everyone to have a great experience in the water. My picture was taken in the Mediterranean sea a few years back.

Swim Instructor role:I have been teaching and coaching swimming for over 30years to children of all ages, in a variety of settings and environments. I also currently work with triathletes in improving swim technique for open water. I thoroughly enjoy the excitement a child (regardless of the age), when a goal is achieved. I can share many stories about swimming and teaching, but nothing is more satisfying when a child has a big smile and is thrilled to see you because they enjoy the swim time.
Event Lifeguard role:I began lifeguarding at 16 and found a passion in water safety. This began an incredible journey and lifeguarding on some of the wildest waters in the world. Currently, I guard at several local pools and private parties, as well as open water swim events. As I guard, I not only watch the water, but empower my patrons to make responsible choices and learn about water safety. The NO, has a reason. I want your experience to be fun, as long as it is safe.
Additional certifications in: Lifeguard Open Water Certified — lake/ocean, WaterPark Certified, O2 Certified,
Red Cross Lifeguard Instructor (LGI) role:I am currently a lifeguard instructor through the American Red Cross. In this, I am able to certify guards for pools, waterfronts (lake, pool) and waterparks. I have trained over 1000 lifeguards in my tenure, and am proud to share water safety values with these students. It is thrilling to empower students to pursue an opportunity to help others around the waterfront.

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.
Serving the areas of The Woodlands, Spring, Conroe. HAS ACCESS TO A POOL IF NEEDED.

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.
