I just started a position as a Fitness Coordinator at a Senior facility. This aquatics instructor is very sweet, but we have recieved many complaints. She also is going through many physical issues and always tells us how she “needs to get in the water”. Her skill level is very low also and attendance in her class is low also. These are all reasons to pull her from the classes. We are looking at cutting back her schedule for Fall, but she will still have two time slots. Suggestions on how to handle this are welcome. I have some ideas, but hoping for clarification and other ideas!
I recently had to remove a teacher that I certified from my company’s list of Licensed teachers. She started to use a dangerous product from another company to teach my program.
She stated that she knew how to teach body mechanics because she was A.C.E. certified. She was the slowest learner in the training course and her integrity and focus didn;t quite meet the standards I prefer. I shouldn’t have passed her to begin with. I tried to talk with this woman about how she was out of her contractual agreement and she blew up at me. Then started bad mouthing me to my competition. Best not to get personal with these things.
It’s nice to give people a chance with a certain amount of time to see if they grow at the level you require. But as teachers and wellness managers, it is our responsibility to make sure all people supporting our base goals meet our personal and professional requirements.
hope this helps,
