|An impressed Bill Nye offered to take me |
to the moon after seeing my presentation.*
My presentation room was packed (A special thank you to those attending!) and my audience was extremely receptive and engaged in my material. I had teachers and administrators asking pertinent questions during my slideshow and giving positive feedback afterwards. Of course, I made each attendee sign an affidavit that they promised to by my book as soon as it is released by The Critical Thinking Company. (Hey, a girl on sabbatical has got to eat.)
At the end of my hour, I had one administrator approach me to ask if I would be available to teach my Interest Projects' curriculum to her staff. I answered with a resounding, YES! Suddenly, a new career path appeared before me: I could teach the teachers and travel, presenting/promoting my material around the country.
That one magical hour at NAGC in New Orleans cured my public speaking fear. Funny, how successful experiences do that, isn't it? So if anyone out there needs a speaker for your faculty, I'm available.
