i asked my teacher if he was doing something fun for the summer, so he says, yes, my wife and i are going to british columbia(i live in mass), and so i was like, oh nice, same here, where in B.C are you going. He then says whistler, so bike and stuff, i tell him i am going, and go to see when he going to be there, and it is the exact dates of the HN sesh 2 camp, found that funny, figured it would be halarious to have him see my smoking or something and cant do shit
must be something about English teachers... i had one who wore skate clothes to work, was a dope skater, surfer, and snowboarder, plus he would always play basketball against the students at lunch and own them.
My 9th grade English teacher was a pretty dope teleskier. I guess I wrote a story about skiing and there were no comments on it like "what do you mean when you say 'shred' or 'gnarly'" like from every other teacher. He then went on to show me pics of his recent trip to ski Tuckermans! I live 45 minutes north of New York City.
Then in a weather and atmosphere class I took freshman year of college (CU-Boulder), I told my professor I was going to miss class the next day. He asked why. I said because Vail is supposed to get around two feet of snow. He said he'd mark it as excused because if he could play hooky, he would too.
Teachers who are heavily involved in sports are cool.
I teach 4th grade and try to ride just about every weekend and every snowday we have. Why should I quit jibbing because I got a "real job?" The worst part of it is injuries. You can't really tell people you were injured doing a switch up or you overshot a landing or anything respectable because most people don't even think freeskiing is a sport. "I fell skiing" is all I can really say and they tell me you will get the hang of it soon, it just takes time and practice. Have fun at camp this summer. That would be cool to see your teacher out there. peace
