I have a Master's Degree in Communications from Northwestern University. I taught communications, including theatre, broadcasting, public speaking and interpersonal communication at several high schools in NYC as well as Educational TV at Columbia Teachers' College. I am the author of the book, Awareness High School: A Practical Guide for Self Discovery and Mastery for Students, Teachers and Parents
I am the VP of public relations for the Arboretum Toastmasters club, so I manage this site.
My biggest fear is managing my nervousness.
I want to become a professional public speaker.
I am Barbara Abbate. I was an educator in NYC and the artistic director of a community theatre Upstate NY. I am currently a facilitator for Truth Be Told which is a program that brings communication classes to incarcerated women here in Texas.
Great club. And you should definitely check it out..
