    I embrace the stress of nerves as I know it is only because I want to do a good job .I prepare notes to help me know the main points and I have some questions to ask students to get their input as well. Take a deep breath…start with an ice breaker such as an opening thought …For instance “WHO has it tougher with peer pressure ? boys or girls or both ? I then give students time to comment then launch into my input.I then show them videos with similar questions being asked of other teenagers. At the end I give them something to fill in about what they have watched/ their opinion.

      Hi Susana – one of the things I loved about what you said is that the reason you get nervous is because you want to do a great job. It’s that great information for all of us. Maybe we are nervous simply because we care about what we do and want to do it well? Thanks!

    Here are my tips or what I do to overcome my fear of public speaking:

    1) Practice in advance what I am going to say.
    2) Try to relax and say to myself that the people in the audience are people like you and me (and not a kind of monster that is going to eat you if you make a mistake).
    3) Speak slowly and give myself time to think in advance what I am saying and how I am saying it.
    4) Have a good time. I try to enjoy and have a good time when presenting.
    5) Be brief and concise.
    6) Try to engage the audience with questions related to I am going to explain next.

    Thank you for the video. I really like it.
