Resiliency

April 16, 2016

If I were to pick one word for bike week it would be resiliency. Whether it was taking off training wheels for the first time, learning to make a tight u-turn around a cone,  or pushing themselves during the duathlon, I consistently saw the students showing grit and determination. Watching their faces when something finally clicked and they mastered a skill is one of my favorite parts of being their teacher.

The second word that sums up bike week is fun. Students had a whole lot of fun over the past two weeks. Check out the photos below to see the students in action.
