SPE 100

Over the last few semesters, I have had the privilege of teaching a section of Speech class — SPE 100 — at Spring Arbor University. The 20 Freshmen/Sophomore students in class this semester show no shortage of creativity, energy, and engagement with the subject matter. I truly enjoy every class session.
Public speaking isn’t easy. If you’re naturally afraid of being up front, it can be sheer terror. If you’re naturally comfortable in front of a crowd, you run the risk of letting your guard down and just “rolling with it” every time. Both areas allow for improvement, and that’s why we’re in this class.
My favorite moments? 1) Seeing someone who was timid really let loose on a speech. 2) Seeing a natural speaker communicate with deeper intention. I’ve had the opportunity to see this again today. Sheer joy. I’m thankful to the LORD that I can be a part of student’s academic, professional, and practical development.
