Meet Our Current Team of Instructors

Ella: Hi! My name is Ella and I am a junior at Burlingame High School. I absolutely love swimming and I am so excited to have the opportunity to share my passion with your child. Swimming has always been an important part of my life and I have been swimming club at BAC for over ten years. I even took lessons here, too! Learning to swim is a crucial life skill and my hope is that with my help, your child will not only learn life saving water techniques but also find their love of swimming.
