Thank you Skylar for sharing your beautiful experience. Your words echo other young ladies thoughts I see everyday. Your words give me hope; You are the next in line to Walk for all of us. Thank you for growing up so fast. However, I wished you would not have to step in after the hard work accomplished by your Grandmothers, Mothers and Aunts... I wish you and your Sisters the best and to continue Walking for the Change (with my participation as long as I can breath) hoping that your Daughters will be the One enjoying Equality, Fairness, Universal Respect and True Ownership of their body and soul. In 2017, We are not there yet. Be well.

babette dickson 1 year ago on Bob Burks: Reconsider rates

Bob, same issue with us, teachers in the Boat. We never got any break on a pass...900 to 1000$ ... In reality, we "can't" ski from Monday to Friday because we are in a classroom with all the Steamboat Kids, including the precious cargos of resort employees.... But never mind, they must say to themselves! We educate them, prepare them for their dreams... but this is not important... So we ski week-ends / breaks only at a very high price. Ashame and not very ethical from a business point of view. Maybe the executives at Ski Corp need to read/learn my Business Ethics unit I teach in class... Anytime, by the way...


babette dickson 1 year, 1 month ago on Steamboat Mountain School students: Greece, Mongolia and Tanzania

I wish I could lead all my students skiing in Alaska, scuba diving in Tahiti, attending a culinary class in France.... Who will pay for (me and) my students? We don't have the financial means SMS wealthy families have in Steamboat. Look at the socio-economic fabric of that school vs public schools. Therefore, I do not appreciate the sarcastic portray.... stigma... "Let’s see...26 days exploring Greece, or sitting at a school desk?"

Thank you, Eugene, in advance for respecting the work accomplished in public schools... where the 99% of Steamboat kids strive.
