Teaching Swimming -- Trials and Rewards

Last week, for the first time, I had such a difficult time teaching swimming that I wondered if I would be able to continue.  Given how weak I felt, I did not know until this morning if I would be up for teaching today.  Even if I could manage to teach, I worried that it would take everything out of me and leave me like a rag again.

In the end, I felt OK, so I decided to teach, and I am so glad!

I had amazing classes!!

My beginners all accomplished a new step forward and we were all so excited!

My advanced swimmers worked hard and had a very productive lesson as well.

Of course I felt tired afterwards, but I also felt great!

I love teaching and days like today make all the efforts worthwhile!!

Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.

With love and optimism,

As a lifeguard, I know that amazing feeling of getting the kids to learn something new. I'm so glad you were able to get them to move forward and you felt so accomplished!

Teaching swimming must be fun. I like to swim but have recently taken a break from it. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing the experience.
