Saving Speech Class for Last

April 15, 2010 at 9:23 am 3 comments

When I came to SSCC around two years ago I told myself to save Speech Class for the last quarter, and here we are, my last quarter and I’m in Speech class. These past two years has really helped me grow as a person and open myself up to new ideas. I’ve learned to communicate better in general and talk in front of people.  I was always kind of scared to talk in front of people.  I build it up in my mind much worse than what it really ever is. But now I’m learning that it’s not bad at all. The main thing really in my eyes is to relax and stay confident.

Over all I’m excited to be in Speech class and Candee Basford is a great teacher. She really know how to make you feel comfortable and that always helps.

    I agree. After going here for a few years and getting to know people, it makes it easier to talk in front of them. It has helped me out a lot. When I went into class the first day I thought I wouldnt know anyone, but turns out I knew a lot of people, and the ones I didn’t know, I talked to and I made a couple new friends. (:

  • Glad to hear it’s going well for you. I teach people to make presentations as my job and, well…. it’s never as hard as people think!

    Glad you’re getting chance to learn public speaking in a Class!
