Saint Simons Island GA

Hi, my name is Mags Eno. I am 16 years old and I work as a lifeguard at Epworth by The Sea and I have been been on the swim team since I was 8 years old. I have always wanted to teach swim lessons because I feel that it is incredibly fun and important that children, along with adults, learn to love the water, learn safety skills, learn stroke development, and to overall, be confident and relaxed when in and around the water. I personally feel that swimming is the most enjoyable activity a person can partake in and I can't wait to help you and/or your loved one(s) develop this essential life skill!
