Rosie Hand
Swimming Teacher 

How did you get into swimming teacher? From being in the swim programme from the age of 4, and competing in Syncronised Swimming. Swimming has always been a part of my life and becoming a teacher seemed natural!
Why have you become a swimming teacher? I enjoy watching people progress and know that i have the skills to help them achieve their goals.
Why did you want to work for DSA? DSA is about committing to each child’s individuality and helping parents understand their children’s swim needs. This is what swimming should be about.
What else describes you, your personality and the way you teach? I am a fun, safe teacher who has gained a lot of different teaching experiences in lots of different places. This gives me versatility to adapt to any situation, and help individual children’s needs.
What is your background? I swam for the Birmingham Synchronise Swimming team, of which winning national competitions. I became a swimming teacher and lifeguard. Travelled around China teaching and also around Britain teaching.
What is the best thing about teaching? I love to see children progress, not just as swimmers but i love to see children grow become more confident in other aspects of the lessons.
What is your philosophy as a swimming teacher? Keep the poolside environment safe and make lessons challenging and fun.
Other places of work and what do you do outside teaching for work I also work in a pun until I can increase my swimming hours. I very much enjoy swimming myself, playing tennis, and engaging in fun social activities!
Hobbies and interests I am a member of the Moseley Ladies Circle. A charity and Social organisation. Other hobbies include reading and socialising
