Baly Botten Hi, my name is Baly Botten. I’m a sophomore at Mount Si High School and I have lived in North Bend my whole life. I am the youngest of four boys who have all worked here at Si View. My favorite part of my job is teaching swim lessons. Swimming is a life skill and I am glad that I get to be a part of it. I love seeing children grow in their abilities and aiding them to be successful. When I am not in the pool you can find me participating in Track & Field as a pole vaulter, spending time with my family, skiing, and enjoying this beautiful valley with my friends.
