Swimming at the Gath Pool, Newton, Massachusetts: A lesson in humility

If you've ever felt like you know it all, just take swimming lessons at the crystal clear Gath Pool.  With the gentlest of demeanor, young teenagers (in Marash Girl's case a 15 year old sophomore at Newton North High School,) decked out in grey Life Guard T-Shirts, can improve your stroke, and help you unlearn those bad swimming habits that have developed over the years.  It takes some work, but your swimming will improve, and so will your humility!

    Humility is the word . . . many of us appreciate the teenager who teaches us how to use our smartphones!
