Ian Bush

Ian started his career with Emler in March of 2017, joining the Flower Mound team as Aquatic Director. A little more than a year later, he accepted the position of Site Director at his home location. Ian developed a love for water at an early age. After taking swimming lessons, Ian became a competitive swimmer at the age of 8, and continued to swim until graduating high school as the varsity team captain. He attended Oral Roberts University and studied Social Studies Education, wanting to find a career with the opportunity to touch the lives of students. Ian was able to merge his two passions – swimming and teaching – when he found Emler Swim School! He now lives in Flower Mound with his wife and 2 year-old daughter (who also takes lessons at Emler Swim School!).

Q+A with Ian

What is the best part about working for Emler every day?

Getting to help students and staff alike to reach their goals is the most satisfying experience of my professional career. Words cannot describe the joy it gives me to see someone succeed at a new skill!

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

I work hard to make sure my staff are always supported and feel valued. I think my team would say that they feel this commitment day-to-day. My job is to make their jobs great!

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

My favorite thing was seeing how deep I could go! Picking up toys from the bottom was a fun challenge.

What is a favorite memory you have about working with us at Emler?

In my first month of working for Emler, I helped a 3 year-old girl who had never attended swimming lessons and was crying out of fear. Over the following 30 minutes, we played together, practiced our kicking, and ultimately had a great first lesson! It still warms my heart to think about the impact I was able to have on their family.

Share a childhood memory when you were brave and overcame fear.

I have always been afraid of heights, but my dad loved going to Six Flags and riding roller coasters. I always refused to get on them, but when my friends started teasing me, I got on the Judge Roy Scream for the first time. I think I rode it about 6 times that night before the park closed. Now I love high places!
