Hi, I’m Jenny!
Teacher & swim instructor >> mama
Welcome! I’m so happy you’re here! I’m Jenny, a mom and early childhood educator + swim instructor focused on nurturing play-based swimming and water parenting. I have a masters degree in education, taught first and third grades, and have taught swimming lessons since 2001.
This Pool Mom thing is a reflection of my adulty roles (above) + my creative, lifelong learner, water lover, and seeker of sunshine sides! It began as a “blog” in January 2016 when I decided to teach my newborn to swim at bath time, see how far it could take us, and write about our journey.
Learning the ropes of parenthood is a steep learning curve for most of us! Defining and honoring what feels right is part of that adventure, and has been one of the most rewarding parts for me. I’m so glad you found Pool Mom and hope my parenting, teaching, and learning experiences proved some insights to help you along the way, too.
