                    WELCOME to Public Speaking!

                    Welcome to Public Speaking I! My name is Mr. Buckley and I'm really looking forward to this class! Public Speaking I will give you the opportunity to distinguish yourself from others by gaining experience communicating in many different situations. I'm also excited to teach important communication theory and skills through the use of real-life activities and technology.

                    My goal is for this to be one of the best classes you ever take at Edina High School while gaining valuable communication knowledge, skills, and experience! Let's get started and find your YAWP!
