Here are some of the students’ comments on my Neurologist lecture from yesterday (I was limited to 5 minutes sadly):
“Seemed VERY comfortable speaking, very knowledgeable!”
“Seemed to be knowledgeable about the material-try to not rely on notecards”
“Had a lot of good information, but slow down when speaking”
“Got tongue tied a few times, so slow down a little to avoid this”
“Speaking a little jumbled out probably due to nerves”
“Great job elaborating on slides”
So not A+ on presenting, but I’ll take it. I tend to lose my tongue when it comes to group presentations (I think their timing makes me inadvertently speed up my own clock) and also get nervous about not hitting every joke/comment/point when I ‘go into action.’ I’m glad there was student feedback for this and I’ll keep these little notes to review again for my next speech (whenever that is!).
I would like to be a professor for PT students sometime down the line, so I’ll take advice and opportunities whenever I can. A select few of my professors really run a class with ease, creativity and professional authority. They’re really an inspiration for me since I’d like to try kick starting and molding the minds of the new PT students one day.
Future Seeker. Optimist. Creative. I don’t know which of those I think fits me best or if they all play equal roles. I tend to love planning, decorating, organizing and just plain thinking about what’s wanted for the ‘future.’ In the past, that’s been a somewhat degenerative way of working for me.
Currently, I think it’s okay. I’m in school and constantly spend weekends dedicated to my studies while trying to remain a good, cheerful and reliable person to my friends and residents. I don’t have crazy weekend stories to boast over or accomplishments to show (only being consistent with school).
So right now I’m okay allowing my mind to drift off and think about future kids names, what culinary adventures I’ll have when I have a full kitchen to work, or patients I can’t wait to work closely with. My fast and early brought on school load is not the normal 21 year old route (which I chose myself!), but I’m dedicated and a hopeful at heart.
to be as caring, considerate and concerned for a child as much as my own Mom is for me.
