Infant Swimming Resource Instructor
Christine Stinson

I found ISR when tragedy struck a young child in my area. I was pregnant with my twins and learned about this wonderful program. During my children's lessons I would sit by the pool with amazement and couldn't shake the feeling that I had to become an instructor. I traveled to Florida to become certified to teach ISR, and after coming back from my training I have not stopped teaching. I am completely dedicated to the ultimate goal that not one more child drown.

After studying musical theatre at Catholic University in Washington DC, I had the unique opportunity to travel internationally with UP WITH PEOPLE, and did community service in the United States and Europe working with children in different cultures. I learned about people both young and old, and embraced the idea that it takes a village to raise a child. I firmly believe that ISR sets the ground work for building self confidence, independent thinking, and problem-solving skills in young children.

I am so thrilled to be part of such a special program and truly enjoy everyday I am teaching ISR.
