My school is a special education school that serves students from 9th grade through their completion of school. Our focus is on vocational training. Overall, we strive to arm our students with the skills needed to both obtain and maintain a job. For most of us, these skills are acquired through experiences throughout our early lives. I try to provide experiences for my students that they would not otherwise be able to have, whether it be from their disability or being from the inner-city.
Our ski team creates these once-in-a-lifetime experiences for our students.
The team looks forward to this trip every year, and they get many intangible benefits from participating in this team sport of skiing. They love not only skiing together, but also supporting each other and seeing each other succeed.
My ski team would be absolutely delighted for the opportunity to go on a trip to the Adaptive Sports Foundation. They have trained hard all year and for them to have the chance to go to a mountain to actually have the chance to ski would be a dream come true.
This trip will give my team memories that will last a lifetime!
The entire experience is one that they will be telling their friends and families about for years to come. Everything from the bus ride through the mountains, to seeing the ski resort for the first time, and even stopping at McDonald's on the way back, will bring so much joy to the team.
