Meet Our Instructors:

We've got a great team of instructors at each of our Branches ready to help you or your child progress in their swimming skills!

Chino: Alyssa Schemel 

Skill Expertise: Hello, I work with all kids aging from 3 to 15 years old. I mainly specialize in teaching free style, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. But I can confidently teach children how to begin to swim all the way into rules for competitive swim team. I look forward to working with you and your children. 

Chino: Senna Forkner

Skill Expertise: Hello, I hear your looking for a swim instructor. Look no further. I am the one. I am experienced with 3-years of teaching from ages of four and up and have experience with water polo. I played college Water Polo for two years at Mt. SAC. I am enthusiastic but stern. Safety is my fist concern but a swimmer is not going to learn without a little bit of fun and encouragement. Hope to see you soon!

Chino: Brianna Contreras

Skill Expertise: I have been swimming for many years and am currently swimming at a collegiate level. I find that learning basic skills, focusing on technique, and building endurance are important to enjoy swimming and to become a more powerful swimmer in the water. With hard work and dedication your goals; whether it be to strengthen your skills as a swimmer or recreation can be accomplished!”

Chino: Marilyn Villalpando

Skill Expertise: Swimming has been a part of my life for more than 10 years, 6 of them being with a swim club and 4 with my high school swim team. Since it was such an integral part of my life, I decided to become a lifeguard. Shortly after becoming a lifeguard, I started teaching swim lessons. I have been doing so for a little over a year now and it has been great. I love teaching children of all ages the basics of water safety and the proper techniques to swim competitively. I am able to teach them the skill necessary to be a great swimmer. I have taught kids of all ages ranging from toddlers to teenagers. I am a patient instructor and I'm very encouraging. I have had multiple students who were terrified at the start but after a while have grown used to being around and in water. Seeing improvement in their skill is the most rewarding part of the job. Not only is the ability to swim a crucial survival skill, but it can become something that they can find a passion in, as I did.

Upland: Dulce Casillas

Skill Expertise: Hey, my name is Dulce! I was on my high school swim team for two years. This is my first year here at the Y and as a swim instructor, but I've been a lifeguard for two years now. I work with all ages and I've been loving seeing them gain confidence and comfortability and overall, improve in the water. My objectives are to build confidence and help nervous swimmers overcome their fear of the water, as well as building endurance for intermediate/advanced swimmers.
