Veronica Grammer - Assistant Coach
My name is Veronica Gammer and I am a grade 11 student at Duchess Park Secondary School. I have been with the PGBSC for 7 years, and I have been coaching for 1 year. I have had training and I have passed the Swimming 101 course.
Some of my hobbies include reading, and watching movies. You can usually find me either watching a movie or having my nose in a really good book. I love to be with my friends and family. I travel with my family often, because I have a large family and they are all far away from us, and we go visit them often.
When I grow up I would like to be a teacher because I like to help, and teach what I know to those who want to learn.
