About Me

Janelle-Elly-pool
My name is Janelle Hyde-Williams, certified instructor and master instructor candidate with swimsprout™.  I am a mother of three beautiful girls, ages 31, 23, and 12.  I grew up in Allen and have lived here for 38 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 spending time with my family, volunteering at my daughter’s school, performing music a local wineries, tending to the vineyard venture I have undertaken with my husband, and spending time at the church my family attends.  I look forward to meeting you and to teaching your child how to swim and have fun in the water!
