Are you comfortable in front of people ,or does the idea of public speaking make you want to hide in the bathroom? Why?
Public speaking or not I am a bit jittery when I have to speak in front of a gathering. After the initial five minutes I feel okay.
I won’t admit I love speaking in public, however I can if I have to. Someone once remarked, ” you are a teacher how can you be nervous in front of a public?”
My reply was,”I do not have trouble teaching, but it’s different from public speaking, here I have a group of kids whom I see every day, a friendship develops and the fear factor is removed.
This is a kind of fear, where I feel I may not be able to do a good job, it makes me nervous.
