- Reno Nevada
I'm a senior at Reno High School
Snowflakes are kids aged 6-8 and due to holiday overflow, we open a second rental shop for smaller kids. As most are in lessons and the parents would benefit from a shorter line. This year I managed the small rental shop for The Tahoe Donner association.
I am a snowboard instructor at the Tahoe Donner ski resort in Truckee California. I generally teach classes from 6-8 students. The basics of snowboarding and mountain safety and awareness.
I encourage my students to set goals, and use strategies to attain them. Everyday during our sessions, my students are learning new techniques and skills. These techniques often don't match up with math. They are techniques or ways to help these kids excel in any area, by teaching themselves.
I was assigned 6-8 students who held F's in their math course. So I worked with these students every school day. Helping the master the basics they didn't understand, as well as caught them up on day to day lessons.
Incoming Freshman are assigned a Freshman mentoring class. Mentors in this class are upper class man who help these freshman, to in a sense, acclimate to new surroundings an academic rigor. Also the mentors act as role models displaying excellence in academics and community service.
