Uma Alagappan is a co-owner and Assistant Aquatic Director at Fort Aquatics.
Uma is currently the Administrative Director at Fort Montessori Academy and
co-owner. She learned swimming at age 12, which she considered to be very late.
Her passion has been to build a swim school and integrate it with Fort Montessori
so that we can begin teaching swimming for children at early age. Uma believes
that academics alone is not sufficient for a child but learning a life skill/sport
like swimming is essential for a child's good health, confidence and discipline.
Uma drove the Fort Aquatics expansion for Fort Montessori from the very beginning
and is very happy to realize that her dream is coming true. Uma would love to see
everyone,young and old, relax in the water and feel your bodys buoyancy . Uma carefully
selected the swim curriculum she wanted to offer,similar to a Montessori curriculum and
underwent training to become a part of the Instructor Training Team. Uma loves reading,
teaching, playing table tennis and travelling. She is married and has two children and loves to travel the world over.
