Carol has been teaching swim lessons for five years, has experience coaching a high school swim team, teaching adults, and children/adults with special needs. Carol loves being a swim instructor because she gets to teach children and adults important lifelong skills. When she’s not teaching lessons you can find her finishing up her degree in Recreation Therapy at Cal State Long Beach, going for a hike, and enjoying quality time with her family and friends.
