HELP! I have to give a speech for the graduating 6th graders at my school, and I know I shouldn't be, but I'm scared out of my wits! I know, I know, she's a teacher, she should be good at public speaking, but I literally have sweaty palms just typing this out. Anyway, I have no idea what to say. I would like to incorporate part of Dr. Seuss's "Oh, the Places You'll Go." (Maybe too cliche?) This is my first year teaching, I really have nothing to go on. I've been teaching a combo class all year (5/6) and have had 47 students come in and out of my classroom. Only 6 of my 16 sixth graders have been here since the beginning. One I've only had for 2 weeks. The trouble is I'm having to speak to all the 6th grade classes at promotion AND their parents. Ugh. Any tips or speech templates would be helpful.
