As a small, local company we're passionate about what we do. Our classes are instructed by one of our professionally trained and fully qualified teachers and our aim is to give 100% with every lesson that we deliver.
Kalie is the Director and founder of Mighty Swimmers and is extremely passionate about swimming and teaching swimming. I wanted to create lessons that were built around pupils as individuals, meeting everyones individual needs, whilst building confidence, having fun and learning core lifesaving skills with teachers that all have a real passion for teaching swimming. I also have a love for open water swimming and in 2017 I swam the channel from Dover to France within a relay team raising over 25k for charity with my team. I have taken a break this 2018 to welcome my first child which I am equally excited about!
Alexis joined Mighty Swimmers back in 2015 and has worked with us in the office and as a Swimming teacher since. Alexis has 2 small children of her own, is a qualified adult and baby teacher as well as a fully qualified level 2 Swimming teacher. Full of encouragement and enthusiasm Alexis is a wonderful teacher who is always smiling!
Jessica joined Mighty Swimmers in 2013. Jessica was a customer of Mighty Swimmers who brought both her boys to us to learn to swim. Jessica had so much fun in the adult and child class that she decided to join our small and growing team to become a teaching assistant. In 2014 Jessica completed the first part of her teaching qualifications and passed with flying colours and than in 2016 Jessica became a fully qualified level 2 swimming teacher. Jessica has this to say: Joining Mighty Swimmers as a Swimming Teacher has been the most rewarding and fun role that I have undertaken, I love it! Especially seeing the children progress and gain confidence in the water.
Mark came to us as a fully qualified teacher in 2013. Mark is a wonderful teacher who has a real passion for swimming and loves being in the water. Mark is a all round teacher with an understanding nature and has become one of our chosen teachers for those who have Autism. Mark has this to say: It’s the best feeling in the world seeing children and adults learning a skill that they will keep with them for life.
Elaine joined us back in 2014 as a poolside manager but it soon became very apparent that Elaine had a huge passion for swimming and you could see Elaine on poolside just wanting to get in and teach with us! Elaine is now a fully qualified level 2 swimming teacher who brings a abundant on passion and enthusiasm to lessons every week.
Lee joined us in 2014 and has quickly become a excellent and well sought-after teacher completing his qualifications as a fully qualified swimming teacher in 2015. Lee comes form a competitive club level himself and whilst he finds himself helping local club children beat their personal best times, he is also extremely empathetic in settling the most nervous of both children and adult swimmers.
Helen is a level 2 teacher and has been with Mighty Swimmers, on and off, for a few years, taking a break to pursue further education at college and university. I soon realised I missed it too much and now I have the best of both worlds. I enjoy taking all levels and getting the swimmers to really understand all the strokes and the best ways to move through the water.
You will mainly find Helen on poolside managing, making sure lessons run smoothly.
Hazel joined us in 2017 as a poolside manager. With a background working in sports management and with Hazel's lifesaving qualifications, we were quick to ask Hazel to join our team in helping the smooth running of poolside and weekly lessons at our West Lothian pools.
Carolyn first met Kalie many moons ago when they worked together as swimming teachers. Since then Carolyn has worked in an office job before making the decision to go back to education and complete her degree in midwifery. Carolyn is now a trained Doula but also continues to work in the Mighty Swimmers office as she does so to help keep the invisible side of the lessons running smoothly.
