Second Year Instructor
Hi! My name is Hannah Casey and this is my second year with Swim Warriors.
I will be graduating this spring from Classical Conversations of Cumming and will be attending Truett McConnell University in the fall as a Special Education Major. Our family has fostered 53 kids over the last ten years, many with varying special needs. I am grateful for the time we’ve had with each child, as it has shaped my love for children and my passion for those with learning, physical and emotional differences.
Outside of the pool, I have hands-on experience with children on the Autistic Spectrum, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Heart Defects, Gtube dependent, Tracheostomy dependent, RAD, SPD, and kids from varying levels of trauma. In addition, I am certified in CPR/AED/First Aid in adult and pediatrics through the Red Cross.
I am so excited to be returning this summer. Last year, I had the opportunity to work with kids of all different abilities from putting their faces in the water for the first time to advanced swimmers on Swim Teams, as well as friends who had varying levels of special needs. I find it rewarding watching swimmers grow in their abilities and view each day with a student as a gift.
As a Swim Warrior Instructor, my goal is to teach a new swimmer water survival skills while fostering a love for being in the water. My desire is for each parent to walk away knowing that their child will be safe in and around water and for a child to walk away excited for the next time they can get back into the pool!
"My best advice for swim parents is that with the help of Swim Warriors, trust that their child will be safe in and around water. Have faith in the program and your child will walk away excited for the next time they can get back into the pool!"

MY FAVORITE SWIM MEMORY
One of my foster brothers used to be terrified of the water when he was a baby. But one day when he was two years old, he decided he was not going to be afraid anymore and jumped right in. Seeing us having fun probably made him feel like he was missing out. I loved seeing how proud of he was of himself after he realized it wasn’t so scary.
