José joined the team in 2017, bringing a fresh enthusiasm for sand and 40 years of educational experience with him. A natural instructor, he offers expertise and entertainment in both Spanish and English. José wrote the curriculum for our "Tips ad Tricks" lesson, designed especially for younger kids.
Had such a great time and learned so much. We only had the lesson for one hour, but I would've paid for 5....I would recommend everyone to check it out. Lucinda has so much experience and works well with children.

Jenifer is the newest member of the team, and we are so glad we found her! She is gentle and patient and she really knows how to engage and entertain her students. You're gonna love her! When it is too windy to build sandcastles, you will find Jen kiteboarding -- she is a certified instructor of that as well!
