Hi, I'm Hannah!
I've been teaching since the age of 14 starting as a volunteer at the local hood river pool. I grew up swimming first learning as an infant from my mother, also a swim instructor. I swam competitively from age five to college and started Little Splashes in my backyard at 16. I have served as a lifeguard, swim instructor, special Olympics, swim coach, camp counselor and nanny.
Trained and certified through YMCA, WSI, NSSA, CPR certified
Currently training in WATSU (water massage) & Amnion with the incredible Mary Seamster.
I was awarded a partial scholarship with Swim Angel Fish-adaptive aquatics training that I will completed in 2021. Its is adaptive swimming with children with autism • anxiety • physical • delays • motor • sensory • trauma • discomfort.
Growing up a few blocks from the beach to practically living in her grandparent’s swimming pool during summers- water is a place of solace for Madeline. Madeline studied elementary education and special education at Portland State University.
During college and after graduating, Madeline worked for 5+ years as a preschool teacher and in individual education environments. She finds great joy working with children, and feels her greatest strength is her patience.
Working with children slows down time and reminds us how each moment is a new experience that’s worth being present for. Being able to teach in water is a true gift and she is ecstatic to be part of the Little Splashes.
From navigating big emotions to supporting children in the water, Sierra truly enjoys helping students become water safe. Not only has Sierra has taught hundreds of children how to swim since 2004, she is a Scuba Instructor and the K-2nd grade School Counselor at Westside Elementary.
Sierra is thrilled to be a part of the Little Splashes family and cannot wait to get to know (and swim) with your child!
“It was one of the most amazing experiences to get into the water with her and see her absolutely love it.“
