Hi! My name is Cassidee Heath. I am married to my wonderful husband of 10 years and have 3 amazing young children! I was a special needs teacher for 8 years and I have taught Pre-K, but I am blessed to be able to stay home and homeschool my children now! I enjoy the outdoors, sports, and spending evenings cooking out with my family. I also volunteer at our church, serving in the Children’s Ministry, and I love to help with VBS every year! I received my degree in Education, specializing in Special Education, from the University of North Texas.
When my daughter turned 9 months old, I enrolled her in Swim and Smile TX with Kim Emery. I was astonished that my daughter was able to learn the technique to float at such a young age AND so quickly! Obviously, we didn’t stop there! She continued lessons with Kim until she was 5 and I believe that she is more excited than anyone about the pool that is going in the back yard! My son and other daughter also started lessons at young ages. Though never left unattended, I have always felt confident that if something had happened, they would have been able to save themselves thanks to the skills that Infant Aquatics taught them all.
In April of 2022, I completed 6 weeks of intensive training. I was blessed to be able to go back to Kim Emery for this amazing opportunity. I worked hands-on with dozens of babies and toddlers, and even a few young children. In addition to in-water training, I completed academic work that went along with it. I have acquired skills that will teach a parent and child how to safely be in or around the water by using self-rescue techniques and the swim-float-swim method. I continue to keep my CPR, AED, and First Aid certifications up to date.
My passion has always been working with children and I am more than thrilled to continue educating children and families about swim survival skills. I pray to reach as many children as possible in the years to come with this life-saving program. I am so blessed to have this opportunity and I look forward to teaching your child to love and respect the water!
