I spoke at the school board meeting!

GHS School Board meeting 1/24/2012 (at 1:37 into the clip)

I spoke during the public comment portion of the school board meeting last night.  I was scared to death!  I can stand up in front of a classroom full of students without a problem, but the moment I have to speak in front of others, I get nervous.  This was the first time I ever, in my 23 years as a teacher, spoke at a school board meeting.  This time I needed to as it was something I felt passionate about, and I knew if I didn’t, no one else would.

As nervous as I was and as dorky as I think I look in the video, I am proud of myself for taking a stand!
