I won our club selection for the Toastmaster’s International Speech Contest! I’ll be going on to compete at the next level, the Area, next month.

My speech is titled: “Lessons from a Substitute Teacher.” It’s about the philosophical, leadership, and education insights I’ve had as a substitute that can be applied outside the classroom.

It felt very “meta” to be memorizing and practicing the speech during my lunches, recesses, and prep periods this week.

    I was looking on Pinterest to see what to wear to speak at a Toastmasters contest and here you are!! 🙂 I won the International speech contest at the Area contest and in a week I’ll be going to the Division contest. I hope you won your Area.
