Glossophobia-The Fear of Public Speaking

Public speaking is a fear that I often hear cited along with phobias of things like spiders, snakes, or heights. I think of it as very different, though.

Somebody has decided that what you have to say is important enough that multiple people will want or need to hear it.

I had a similar experience.

With the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in 2015, state leaders have spent the last two years reexamining and strategizing they way they deliver K-12 education.
