    i used to hate them and i was really quiet when i started college, but then did loads in my lessons (one of my teachers loved powerpoint) and because i was nervous i put a lot of work into making sure they were clear and accuarte and i knew exactly what i was doing. i still don't like doing them, but i can do pretty decent ones and i'm much confident. it's pretrifying at first, but practise does make perfect.

    Luckily they are usualy just with a small group, the most I have ever had to one in front of is 35. The worst thing is when you have *****y heads of schools trying to ask you trick questions all the time. They usualy have the DR suffix before their name too. *****!
