When I was still, I always have that fear within me. I am so afraid of many things. I am afraid to face people, I am afraid to enter to the faculty room of my professors during college days, I am afraid to face the entire class when making a report, I even on the brink of dropping my Internship Subject or Student Teaching because I m not so sure if I could make it.
When time goes by, as I already held a teaching position in my dear Alma mater, I somehow manage to overcome my fear. I was able to face my students without shaking my knees (unlike the first day of duty as a teacher). In fact, I already manage my insecurities when I had my last minute teaching-demo. My profession taught me to be strong and, well, confident so to speak. However, when I was already in public secondary school I realized I haven't fully overcome my fear yet! I have fear in facing those in higher authorities. I have fear in being observed while having my class. Another fear was when I was given the task to take the lead in one of our school activities. I'd rather be asked to make certificates, tarpaulins and any other task than taking those bigger leading roles.
Then I realized again, I think I need more dose of Self-confidence.
