I have been teaching swim lessons for over 14 years (11 in Worthington) from infants to adults just learning to swim, preparing for swim team or training for a triathlon.  I have experience coaching 12 and unders for the Summer League Team (WAVE), Worthington Swim Club and experience coaching high school swimmers in Delaware and Worthington.  I love teaching swim lessons to children and adults of all ages and ability levels.

I have been been a youth sports teacher since I was a teenager and a swim instructor for more than three decades. My two daughters were varsity swimmers, with one playing collegiate water polo, and now that they’re grown I enjoy passing on water skills to new generations.


I enjoy teaching all ages and skill levels and my biggest joys in teaching are seeing those who are afraid of the water or can’t swim overcome their fears and feel safe while swimming. I also take great enjoyment in fine tuning swimming skills for those who want to compete. Flip turns and starts are so much fun!

As a seasoned high school science teacher and coach, I have taught swimmers of all ages (2 months to 92 years) for decades, coached 5-8 year olds for Worthington USA Swim Team, and also worked with every level of triathlete. Having passions in education and the science of athletics has guided me to earn an undergrad degree in Biology and Chemistry and a Masters degree in Education. Not only do I love teaching swimming, I understand the physics, psychology, and physiology involved in learning how to swim and swimming well!


I’m happy to work with every level – I believe I’m best with level 4, 5, on up. But I have plenty of experience and success with total beginners (young and old), babies and toddlers, fearful swimmers, children with disabilities (experiences with Down’s Syndrome and autism) and adults – and I’m happy to teach all level & age swimmers!


I am a student at Arizona State University studying healthy lifestyle coaching. Swimming has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have competitive swim experience up to the college level. I have taught swim lessons at Worthington Pools for the past ten years. I enjoy working with swimmers at all stages whether you are a beginner or refining technique for swim team. I look forward to working with you and sharing my love of the water.



Hello! My name is Ethan Jacko. My professional aquatics experience dates back to 2019, where I began my career at the Reynoldsburg YMCA. Since then, I have also acquired a job as an assistant swim team coach. Going further back, I competed on various swim teams for over ten years.


Hello! My name is Breanna Dayton, but you can call me Bree! I am currently in college at The Ohio State University studying communications. My plan is to either become a writer or do something within social media. As for my teaching experience, I started teaching swim lessons when I was 16. I absolutely love swimming and even swam competitively for my high school. I haven’t had time to do much swimming in college but it is still one of my favorite activities! Thanks for reading!


I am a student completing his DVM at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Before Ohio State, I attended DePauw University, where I swam NCAA all four years. My teammates elected me captain of both my high school and collegiate swim teams. Between the club, high school, and collegiate levels, I have over 18 years of swimming experience. I began lifeguarding and teaching swim lessons in early high school. While I am comfortable teaching all age groups, my favorite part of teaching lessons is seeing the progression of my students over time!



I am a homeschooled student with a passion for swimming and teaching. I have swam all my life and have spent several years as a competitive swimmer. I love to teach all levels and ages. I really enjoy having fun in the water with the kids and working hard to help them achieve their goals. Starting out as a very timid swimmer, I now love to help kids conquer their fears and become confident in the water. I really look forward to working with you!


Hello! My name is Eleanor. I am 17 years old and a senior in high school at St. Francis DeSales. I have been swimming my whole life, and decided to join the swim team at my high school, freshman year. I am proficient in teaching all of the strokes, as well as flipturns and diving off of the block. I have 5 siblings (4 younger) and I babysit often so I have a lot of experience with kids, ranging anywhere from 3 months to my 13 and 14 year old brother and sister! In addition, I was a lifeguard the summer of 2021, but I chose to instruct instead the following year, because I enjoy teaching and interacting with others. 



Hi, my name is Ross Poppy and right now I have aspirations of receiving my Doctorate in Pharmacy from Ohio State University but I have always been passionate about teaching young children. I am the oldest of 4 boys and have been taking care of them for as long as I can remember. I also volunteer as a children’s leader at my church where I have worked with children of all ages for multiple years. I have been swimming my whole life and I received my varsity letter for swimming my freshman year. I loved being a part of the high school team but unfortunately, due to health issues, I recently had to stop swimming competitively but being able to teach others how to swim has brought me so much fulfillment. I look forward to working with your children, teaching them how to swim, how to improve the skills they have already acquired, and most importantly, how to safely have fun in the water.


HI! My name is Henry. I’ve been swimming for most of my life. I grew up in a swimming family, as my mother was also an instructor and a coach for over 20 years. She has been a great mentor to me which has allowed me to be a well rounded instructor. 



Hi, I’m Matthew, an 11th grade student at Saint Francis DeSales High School. I have five siblings and lots of experience with younger kids. I have been on a competitive swim team for 2 years and really enjoy the sport. I have been working here for around 6 months. I can teach all levels of swimming, from beginner levels to advanced stroke techniques and have personal and teaching experience with freestyle, backstroke, breast, and butterfly.
