Hi! I’m Stacy. I have been an instructor at Dupage Swim Center since 2004. I swam on the varsity team for all four years in High School. I graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a degree in education, and I currently teach Math in high school. I was a competitive swimmer my entire life, and I still love swimming. I teach the upper group levels and private lessons. I specialize in working with Swim Team members and Triathletes. I love watching all of the students grow and succeed in their goals.

OUR INSTRUCTORS:

All of our instructors are CPR, AED, First Aid, and Lifeguard certified. New instructor candidates must complete the Du Page Swimming Center’s training program and apprentice for a minimum of 40 hours before teaching independently.

We believe in on-going training and education to ensure our instructors utilize the most current teaching methods, which are reviewed in our quarterly in-service training meetings. We also conduct monthly CPR testing to keep our staff up-to-date in life-saving techniques.
