Fourth Year Junior Instructor
& Jr. Quality Control Supervisor
My name is Brooke Hataway and I am so excited to be teaching for Swim Warriors this year!
Last year, I was a Junior Instructor and a Junior Quality Control Supervisor, but I finally am an instructor! I’m so excited to get to meet some of you and get to know your swimmers. I am a rising junior at West Forsyth High School as well as the Vice President of culture and community for my school's student government. I love getting to talk to people and I am a social butterfly. I am also certified in CPR/AED/First Aid in adult and pediatrics through the Red Cross.
Since I was little I was obsessed with caring for kids. I used to take great care of my baby dolls as a young child. Then I moved on to babysitting my cousins and friends’ younger siblings. And now, I will be teaching kids how to swim! Also, I have some experience with caring for children with special needs. I have spent quite a bit of time with kids at this point in my life, and I have developed a passion for watching them learn, grow, and become who they are. Knowing I played a part in their learning is extremely gratifying.
I have always loved swimming, and being around water. I am so excited to be able to share that love with swimmers. Swimming is a skill that I believe everyone should learn at a young age and this is the perfect opportunity to be able to learn that skill. I am so excited to see what the season brings!
"My advice to parents is to trust us here at swim warriors. Although it may seem scary for some of those first-time parents putting their child in the water for the first time, survival swimming at a young age is so important. Trust your instructors because we have your swimmer's best interest!"
MY FAVORITE QUOTE
“Every journey starts with fear" - Jake Gyllenhaal
This is one of my favorite quotes because it reminds me that even though I may be nervous about trying something new or going out of my comfort zone, it’s okay to feel this way and once the fear passes, I can continue to grow along the way.
