As I was looking through the possible assignments for this week, I stumbled across one that was a challenge to better speaking skills. This is something that felt valuable to me and my future. As a future educator, I will be speaking every day. I know that I always talk too fast when I present and teach, so I watched the video and tried to plan my pauses and be more confident in the words that I was speaking. It is not perfect, but this helped me learn new skills to use when I teach. Focusing on how I was presenting information was very mind-opening.
