I have not raised my hand all class. I know what to say; I have something worthwhile to share … I want everyone to hear what I have to say. I say to myself:
“Michaela, you can do it. Raise your hand. You’ve done this before.”
It is almost as if I am playing hot potato in my head — in the end, I do not raise my hand. Another opportunity is missed, and I am left scolding myself until the next day.
