Barbara Sheets

Hello, I would like to share with you that I am a mother of 4 (3 Girls & 1 boy. 24,21,14&11). I am an educator by trade: I currently hold a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education and teach for Pasco County Schools. During my summers I enjoy spending time with my family and offering swim classes for young children. I know and understand the importance of young children having the ability to be safe around all bodies of water. I began offering swim lessons with the Aquatic Center in May of 2016, and have enjoyed serving many families here in Marion County.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have in regards to your child’s swim needs, class days & times available. Please know that any  absence by the instructor will be made up, however, if you do not let me know and do not show it will be considered a class. Thank you, for choosing the Aquatic Center for your child’s water safety and swim needs.
