I am an employee of Portland
Community College and have been teaching Speech Communication for over 15 years. Speech Communication is a broad discipline with a variety of
areas: relationships (is it really credible to teach a subject for
which one has little positive experience?), small group discussion,
intercultural communication (yes, I teach Political Correctness but hell I am not a fanatic about it),
of the students laugh.....as well as to introduce skills which can change people's lives. Every time I teach any course - and I am the instructor on the Sylvania Campus who teaches all the oddball courses - I learn a bit more about and for myself.
