People have often told me, you speak so naturally, you must not get nervous. The truth is, I don't! I was a school teacher for 13 years and a State of Illinois Teacher Trainer. Working with middle school children, one can never be nervous. It must be natural or the students will, well you know middle school students! Let's just say middle school teachers are always ready for anything!
After what was 13 wonderful years in the classroom, I then opened my own business, I now own my own foreign language school, coach small business owners and continue to train other professionals in various workplace environments. It sounds cliche but I really do love to teach and public speaking is simply put....teaching but in a different arena. One of my clients recently said to me, "we can just give you an audience and a topic and you can reach them." There is no better testimonial than that!
