About Amber:  My name is Amber Shipp and I have been teaching swim lessons at Waugh Chapel for 10 years. Prior to that, I was a lifeguard at WCSC for three years in high school and college. I have been a teacher with Anne Arundel County Public Schools since 2009 and currently teach 1st grade on Ft. Meade. On June 30th I will be getting married, becoming Amber Statland!

Having grown up in Four Seasons, I spent my summers at WCSC. I love being able to continue to help the swim club community and consider it a privilege to work with its’ youngest swimmers!
