Happy Labor Day to everyone!
The 2019 Summer season is coming to an end. This summer was filled with many laughs, moments of excitement, frustrations for some, and maybe even some tears. All in all, I believe that it was a good summer.
I want to congratulate all of the local day camps, aquatic facilities, and commercial pool companies that I have had the pleasure of working with this past season. I want to commend each of your teams with the hard work you have done by keeping your staff on your toes as well as keeping your facilities safe!
I know that I am going to personally miss my team of lifeguards this summer. I learned a lot from them this past season. I want to thank all of my lifeguards that my team of instructors and I had the pleasure to train this past season. Every single one of these guards loves what they do. These guards make me love what I do by continuing to teach lifeguard training classes to the NXT generation of guards.
For some of these guards, this will be their very last summer on the stands as they have graduated college and they are ready to move onto the next chapter of their lives. Many of them will start a new full time career, while others get into a specialized graduate program to further their dreams and desires. I hope that being a lifeguard raised your confidence in your own abilities, created new friendships, or taught you skills that you would have never learned in a different summer job. Just know that you will always be a lifeguard at heart and will never forget #howtosavealife .
For those guards that will be returning to your facility for next summer, let the fun begin. We have much to learn, do, and prepare for to enjoy our summer. However, the teamwork and effort will continue to grow stronger.
So what’s next on the agenda during the off season?
What do you do during the year?
These are many of the questions I get every year.
#Bynatureandbyheart I am a teacher who works year round with kids. Being a teacher is what allowed me to do everything I am doing today. I would not change anything in the world. Besides teaching the #Littles ( credit goes to Anne Marie R. For this code name for elementary students in terms of endearment) , I will be continuing my graduate school education at Rutger’s GSE in special education to continue my abilities to be a better teacher. I also run my business year round. Cpr/AED/ First aid, babysitters training, and other classes will be running.
I am working on hiring additional instructors to train my clients in lifesaving techniques . Apply if interested.
I will be preparing for the winter and spring 2020 schedules to kick of the 2020 summer season.
