I independently taught classes on substance abuse prevention and adolescent pregnancy prevention.

Learning experience

I learned how to teach from a curriculum. I would now feel comfortable picking up a curriculum I have never observed and teach it.

What advice would you give?

Get out of your comfort zone. I was scared to speak in classes when I started and speaking in classes ended up being the highlight of my internship.
