    • Parenting

If all the world were a skate park, celebrating our abilities and individual expression would be a given. In this episode we talk to Miki Vuckovich from USA Skateboarding about their “Skateboarding For All” initiative. The beauty found in the inclusive skating community is one we strive to cultivate in the classroom and the world. You can join them on December 11th for a Virtual Wrap Party which includes members of the U.S. Olympic team and several skateboarding legends.
