Rachel-Ang

Rachel Ang

Summer Instructor

Hi! My name is Rachel and I’ve been a part of the Southeastern family since 2011 when I had my first swim lessons. I am the definition of a band kid. Anything band (especially bassoon), and you’ll be barking up my alley. While I do like to get around, my favorite thing is storytelling, so getting to know these kids and their stories exhilarates me. On the other hand, people from swimming and lessons have had such a large effect on my life. As someone who competitively swam for a good chunk of my life, and has had a fair share of success in it, the people you meet along the way can be guiding lights. That’s why I’d like to pass that on and be a light for all the kids I teach.

Rebecca-Ang

Rebecca Ang

Summer Instructor

Hi, I’m Rebecca! Currently, I’m finishing up my senior year at HSE. When I’m not playing either one of my instruments, I can be found playing video games or crafting. Although I have retired from swimming competitively, I believe that swimming is an essential skill to learn. This year, I hope to pass that skill on to your child. That being said, I can’t wait to work with your child!
