Welcome to Speech class!! Public Speaking….a fate worse than death? An exhilarating step into the limelight? A chance to make your voice heard? No matter how you might feel right now about speaking to an audience, learning to communicate with poise and purpose is one of the most beneficial skills you can acquire – for high school and adult life beyond! No matter which career path you might choose, chances are, you will be called upon to interact with people. Effective speaking skills can mean a job secured, a product sold, a project promoted, or an understanding established between people! You’re going to need speaking skills, and this class can help!
The goal of this class is three-fold:
- To equip students with speaking skills they’ll need in the years to come,
- To encourage students to feel more comfortable and confident speaking,
- and to glorify God and fulfill the Great Commission with our speech!
My name is Mrs. Rahm, and I have both a passion for public speaking and a love of teaching. My background includes a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations, a master’s degree in Education, and several years of speaking for Mosaic Pregnancy and Health Centers. It’s all joy to me to speak, to teach others how to speak, and to use my voice to point others to Christ! My hope is to share my passion with students.
My Personal Testimony:
God began drawing me to Him even before I was cognizant of His presence, with the salvation of my parents and early years steeped in faith and the education of His Word. At 7, I realized my need for a Savior and gave my life to Him, marking the beginning of my lifelong journey under His Lordship. Throughout my years (and 12 schools for this military brat!) He continued to draw me to Him, providing grace for my failures, help in time of need, and hope for the future. Today I am married with four children, and I still walk with Him, desiring the Gospel at the core of all I do, and a life reflecting Christ.
“Moses said to the Lord, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.” The Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.””
