After watching the video, I noticed where, especially in the beginning, I seemed to stuttered a little bit. I remember right in the moment this happening and how my heart-rate was fast. As a whole, I feel my tone of voice was very good and on par with second grade.

Though my talk-moves and discussion tactics stilled need to be improved, I was proud that my planning of incorporating vocabulary terms in a grade-level appropriate manor seemed to pay off. This is something that is normally the first type of thing I forget in a lesson demonstration, and I was proud I seemed to do this successfully. In the future, I can only hope to be able to comfortably add more terminology when appropriate as I become more
