My name is Janelle Hyde-Williams, certified instructor and master instructor candidate with swimsprout™. I am a mother of three beautiful girls, ages 35, 26, and 16. I grew up in Allen and have lived here for 40+ years. I discovered independent swimming and floating skills for little ones when my youngest was an infant and we were looking for a swimming program for her. I was so amazed by what she learned that I decided to train to become an instructor.
I attended UT Dallas and earned my BA in literary studies along with my teaching certificate for secondary grades. I completed some graduate work at UNT in special education. I have found no more fulfilling work in my lifetime than working with little ones as a swimming instructor. I thoroughly enjoy working with children and there is nothing more amazing and exciting to me still than to watch a child master the life-saving skills that this program teaches them.
When I am not in the pool teaching little ones to swim, I am volunteering at my daughter’s school (Lucas Christian Academy), spending time with my family, performing music at local wineries, and spending time with good friends at the church my family attends. I am a follower of Jesus first and foremost, and my life’s goal is to use the gifts I’ve been blessed with to glorify Him and help others. I look forward to meeting you and to teaching your child how to swim and have fun in the water!
