What I do..

Although what I do is classified in my contract "teaching," I think of myself as something more akin to a swim coach.  I'm not really teaching any new skills, I'm just drilling the kids in skills that they already know.  I see my job as encouraging them to use their new fledgling ability, while convincing them that the water is safe and fun.  Every once in awhile, however, I have to blow the whistle to let them know that their behavior is out of line...
