Artifact: Snowboarding instructor at Song Mountain in Tully, NY.
Date: 2009-2010 winter season
Reflection: I was able to teach kids ages 3-11 beginner snowboarding skills at Song Mountain. I found this to be so rewarding because I love the sport and growing up in Central New York provided me with so many opportunities to use my gift. To be a snowboarding instructor at Song Mountain, all future employees had to undergo a series of trainings and also had to know the different progressions for how to teach kids the skill of snowboarding.
