Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I was a high school teacher for 4 years and taught public speaking classes to sophomores. As a higher education administrator for 22 years, it was my job to give presentations to university officers, boards of trustees and prospective students and their families. I successfully campaigned for public office three times, which required significant public speaking. I have moderated countless candidate's forums for the League of Women Voters in the Palos-Orland area. I currently serve on the Orland Park Library Board of Trustees, which also requires public speaking skills. As a tutor at Joliet Junior College and Moraine Valley Community College, I worked with students to improve their speech composition and public speaking skills.
