Swimming instructor for kids ages 3 to 13 in a fun environment.
Swim Instructor (Former Employee), Maple Grove, MNJune 27, 2013
Pros: gratification of helping children excel and over come fears, seeing hard work come to fruition, building relationships with parents and children and feeling like i was helping people.
Cons: being in water for 5 to 6 hours at a time, low hours on work schedule
I loved working at Foss. To watch kids grow and over come fears by playing with them in the water and teaching them vital survival skills. I learned a lot about child psychology and how playing can really make a difference in how a child learns and grows. It expanded my creativity in a really fun way. I've always been a swimmer, it's second nature to me, so teaching a child who is scared of the water was a challenge I took on and excelled in. Building relationships with the kids and their parents made me realize how important my job really was. The hardest part of the job was being in the water for 5 hours at a time. Chlorine does horrible things to your body. Over all though, if the hours were there, I would most likely still be working there. But thinking about working 8 to 9 hours at a time in the water sounds a little scary to me.
