Our People At New Plymouth

Christina Davis

I began Swim Teaching with Fulton Swim School - in 2015 and have taught hundreds of brilliant children from babies through to squad levels

I have grown up doing just about every water sport you can think of. However my favorite was surf life saving where I spent seasons Life Guarding, teaching IRB drivers and teaching Rookie Lifeguards.

So working for a Swim School came very naturally to me with a Water Safety and Surf background.
I have a true passion for teaching and helping families become safe and

enjoy the water while learning the life skill of swimming.

I am now happy call Fulton Swim School - New Plymouth my new home.

Leah Murphy

Hi, I’m Leah.
I am currently studying Early Childhood Education which I have discovered works well alongside with being a swim teacher. It is combining two of my passions, children and swimming. I think learning to swim is a big part of growing up therefore I am very passionate about making and assisting this difference in a child’s life. Other than studying and teaching swimming, I enjoy the outdoors. I enjoy going for hikes, camping and being at the beach. I am a major animal lover, dogs especially, and I hope to have a whole house full of them one day. I decided to become a swim teacher here at Fulton Swim School while completing my studies as I am very enthusiastic about the development and abilities our younger generations can gain, I would love to be a part of that change. I am super excited to get to know the children and families involved here at Fulton Swim School New Plymouth in 2019.

In my spare time I enjoy to go outside and enjoy the fresh air by either walking the dog or going for a run. I look forward to sharing my swimming passion with the younger generation.

Tenaya Richardson

Hi my name’s Tenaya, being in the water has always been a big part of my life. Being raised in Hawaii allowed me to be in the ocean swimming and surfing everyday and helped me to realize how amazing it would be to be able to transfer that joy I felt in the water to other children in teaching them to swim.
