Writing college recommendation letters. I write a short novel's worth a year (about 40 recs), and I get emails from admissions people telling me that they stand out and help tremendously in letting them understand a student. They are all different and none is about resume stuff. I call it my "Speaker for the Dead" role.

Certain specific aspects of teaching. I know lots of teachers that are more talented than me in all sorts of ways, but there are some things I feel like I do better than almost anyone.
