I was hired as manager of Sherwood Pool in the summer of 1973 and started teaching in the fall of the same year. I retired  from teaching in June of 2003 but continued to work half-time for another six years.

Sherwood Pool has been the major part of my summers for the past 41 years. Safety at the pool is my #1 priority and my desire is that we all work together to make this another SAFE and enjoyable year.
