Mackenzie G.


Hello! My name is Mackenzie and the following is some information about myself. NEW INFO!! I was recently told about a promotion I am receiving at my full time job, so I am having to wait to know what my new schedule will look like before I can upload my Propel schedule. My new position starts on October 11th, and will learn of my new hours between now and then. I love teaching and working through Propel so I will be doing my best to make myself available around my new schedule! Please keep checking back in the next few weeks to see if I have uploaded my new availability! If you had bookings with my during October or November I would've given you my personal email to communicate a bit easier! Looking forward to seeing and working with you again! Swimming has always been a passion of mine which turned into a love for Aquatics in general. I have over 7 years of experience with both Lifeguarding, Instructing and teaching AquaFit. I have worked at 6 different pools in those 7 years and have lots of experience with different pool structures and depths. Swimming is a progression sport, like most, and requires mastery of a skill before adding the next progression. One of the best feelings as a swimming instructor is when a child attempts something they have never done before/are scared to do, and they have that lightbulb moment where they are able to do it all by themselves. Watching kids grow and seeing their confidence build in and around water is what keeps me in this business. I have experience teaching all ages and abilities, and I am a firm believer that anyone can learn to swim, to an extent, based on their physical/mental abilities. I am best known for teaching Preschool (ages 3-5) children, as I have had many parents request me as an instructor after teaching their child in one lesson set. I am comfortable teaching all ages, including adults as I think that learning to swim is an essential life skill! I am a dedicated swimming instructor with a positive attitude and I will ensure that you/your child will have the best experience possible! Outside of Propel I am also a Full-time Head Guard at a local pool in Calgary. I enjoy spending time with my partner and our dog as we try to get to the dog parks as often as we can. I try to spend as much time outside as I can especially in the summer months! I hope this lets you know a little bit about me, and I look forward to working with you/your child!
