Ashley Schacher

When Aquatics Manager, Genessee Dennis, arrived in September, there were no Aquaducks classes because we did not have a teacher.  Ashley was asked if she were interested in working with babies - knowing she was a swimmer.  Ashley willingly obliged and was eager to learn.  She was given the resources for instruction and she developed the curriculum on her own.  She has even taken on private instruction and other swimming lessons.  Ashley is awesome with the kids and their parents.  She is self-motivated and never misses her shifts.  Not everyone is willing or good at working with really young children, so thank you Ashley for all you do at the Astoria Aquatic Center!
