Goodbyes are never easy especially when you have to say it to a very special group of students. This term has been a very interesting one, For starters, it will be one where we were all part of history as the Winter that had snow, after snow, after snow! I used to consider myself an Ice Queen, don’t ask. But for the first time in many decades, I absolutely loath these severe snow storms we have been afflicted by even as I type this goodbye message to all.
Every term I have the luck of meeting wonderful individuals and share with all my knowledge in regards to my expertise. I am not just an expert in Public Speaking. I am also an expert in many areas and I bring this diversity into my classrooms to make all of my students better learners. Having a strong societal background as a Sociologist I bring topics that will teach you all valuable things about world today. Being also a world traveler I bring a lot of cultural knowledge into my classrooms and incite everyone to get along in a peaceful manner by engaging in the delight form of communication. At my age I have seen so many beautiful things, as well as terrible ones. Yet, I am always full of hope and know that if I can instill upon you this very word HOPE then you will all spread LOVE and help others to never relent in the quest of their dreams.
Your class, our class, this class in particular, shall always remain in my mechanically ran heart as being one of my best class given the remarkable individuals I have had the great honor of meeting. I have been forged long lasting friendships with many of you and look forward to keeping in touch with you even after this class is over!
Thank you guys for your love, dedication, sacrifices, and hard work. Yes, even baring with this horrid weather just to show up to class!!!!!!
I said in the beginning of our class, most of you might probably say “you learned nothing in class.” But, one thing you cannot deny is that you have gained CONFIDENCE now in yourselves to be effective Public Speakers with a lot of knowledge in all things related to Body Language! Hello Body Language Experts!
with all my love, I thank you for all you’ve done in my class…the good even the bad…I hope it has been a most rewarding learning experience!
What kind of improvements have you noticed about yourself as a public speaker during the course of the term? About your classmates? Which people did you see the most improvement from? If you were nervous at the beginning of the term about standing up in front of a group and speaking, was it as bad as you thought it would be? What made a difference?
How do you plan to use what youâ€™ve learned about public speaking in your impromptu speech, your future classes at DeVry and in your personal and business lives outside of DeVry?
