Meet your teachers
Stacey started swimming competitively when she was in high school. She has enjoyed swimming and most water sports all her life. She graduated from Edgewood College with a degree in Early Childhood Special Education. She worked several years with children who had an autism diagnosis or other developmental delays in many environments. Once she started having babies she took some time off from working outside the home. She then began watching other children while raising her own. About a year ago she started working at Monona Grove Nursery School teaching a parent child class. In her very little free time she has she enjoys spending time with her family, rock climbing, running and doing yoga.
Ms Stacey became interested in teaching swim lessons after watching Ms Brittany’s way with teaching children to swim. It intrigued her and thought it would be a great way to learn how to engage with children at a different level.
Kelly has always loved working with children in helping them grow and learn both in sports and education. From teaching young children how to golf, assisting with summer school classes, and helping with Sunday School at her Church, Kelly has enjoyed helping bring a sense of achievement to young minds. Kelly also knows what it is like to be in the pool. Swimming for her local swim club for a few years, she even swam with Ms Brittany!
When not at the pool you will find Kelly hanging with friends and family, out on the lake or tackling home improvement projects at her home.
Brittany started swimming at the age of eight for her local swim club. Her love of swimming was born and she continued to swim until High School, when she become a coach for her local swim club. Realizing her love and passion for working with children and teaching them the valuable lesson of learning how to swim, she got a job teaching swim lessons. Where for the next ten years she would build her skill set from teaching infants to adults basic water safety skills to stroke technique and triathlon training.
When not in the pool you will find Brittany training for a triathlon, at the lake, or spending time with family and friends! Coming from Dane County, Brittany is excited to be giving back to the local communities and sharing her love of swimming!
Congratulations Ms Brittany!
