About me

 

Hi! My name is Lesley Burke.  I am a Mansfield Physical Education teacher with a degree in Kinesiology from Texas A&M University.  I have been teaching PE for 25 years.  I have taught swimming lessons for 15 years. I am an avid runner and triathlete and competed and finished 3 Full Ironmans, Ironman Florida in 2015, Ironman Louisville in 2016 and Ironman Arizona in 2021.  At Arizona I qualified for the World Championships in Kona , Hawaii in October 2022.  It is a dream come true!!  Triathlons are a lot of fun but hard work. I enjoy teaching kids to swim because I feel like its a valuable life lesson that needs to be

learned by everyone to ensure safety and confidence around water.  I take pride in teaching kids correct form from Day 1.  Correct form should be reached by every child so that swimming feels easier.  I can continue to progress each student into learning new strokes if they conquer the basics of proper form first before advancing to new strokes.
