I have always had an issue with public speaking and I absolutely hate it. I wish that I didn't have this fear because I wold love to have become an attorney or motivational speaker. Instead, I am in college to become an elementary teacher. I know what you guys are thinking. I know that it is standing in front of a classroom and talking but for some reason I don't get nervous when I am helping a child learn. I absolutely love it! I was a preschool teacher for years and had to speak at their graduation and it wasn't a problem. My issue is with college; I hate giving a presentation in front of my peers. I hate the way they look at me and I hate the fact that the room is quite and only my voice is hard. All I'm thinking is that they are judging me. I don't know why but hopefully I will get over it since I am still in college. Do any of you have this issue?
