My name is Emma Hornby, I was born and raised in Kalispell, Montana and I am a sophomore at Montana State University. I was very involved with softball, but swimming was always my true passion and my love for swimming began as soon as I could get in the water. I was in swim lessons from when I could walk until 5th grade when I began competitive swimming with KATS (Kalispell Aquatic Team). I continued with club swim (KATS) and high school swimming until I graduated. I spent almost my entire high school career in the pool and if I wasn’t swimming as a competitor I was teaching lessons at the Summit.
I have taught swim lessons for a little over two years and love love love teaching kids my passion of swimming! I have taught kids from as young as 1 year old to 12 years old with private and group lessons, and never want to stop teaching people to be safe and have fun in the water. My main drive for swim instructing is showing people how amazing the life-long sport of swimming is, and having parents and their kids feel safe around and in the water.
