Hello everyone!! 

My name is Benjamin Arsenault, and I’ve been teaching with Mr. Bill Swim School since February 2021. I’ve been teaching swimming lessons since I was 15 years old (currently giving me around 3-4 years of experience give or take), and have taught for at least two other organizations thus far. My favorite stroke to both swim and teach is the front crawl, however I also occasionally enjoy swimming the elementary backstroke. I have always been great with kids (and super involved in swimming/water-based activities), so when I heard there was a job opportunity that integrated these two skills together, I knew it was a working environment that I could thrive in. I also remembered being quite fond of my experience taking swimming lessons when I was younger (something I progressed quickly in), and knew that if I could deliver the same positive experiences to other people, they’d have positive memories to look back on too. 

 

 

A little bit about me :

 

I am a first-year university student attending UPEI (taking the bachelor of business administration program, specializing in accounting), and have a passion for boxing, photography, drawing, and love to watch movies (from any genre) with my girlfriend. I enjoy any activities involving the water (kayaking, swimming, canoeing, etc.), and have from a very young age. Being a swimming instructor has always meant a lot to me, and has introduced so much stability and responsibility into my daily life since the very beginning (and is a job that I have always loved doing, from day one).

Meet our staff!
