Teacher Spotlight – Jason, Edinburgh

Meet Jason, a dedicated SwimEasy PA in Edinburgh, whose passion for the water shapes every aspect of his life. Starting as an assistant ten years ago, he has since become an integral part of the team, guiding teachers and helping children master swimming, an endeavor that fills him with immense joy. “Watching a child overcome their initial struggles in the pool is massively rewarding,” Jason shares. His work with children at SwimEasy also enhances his understanding of his own kids, recognising the unique ways each child learns.

Off the clock, Jason runs his own surfboard workshop, Jay’s Surfboards. What began as a hobby twenty years ago has grown into a flourishing business, crafting and repairing surfboards. This blend of teaching swimming and surfboard making keeps his life varied and vibrant.

For Jason, whether it’s in the pool or family life, putting children at the heart of everything is what life’s all about. Catch more of his journey on Instagram at @jaysurfboards.
