Rebecca Pitcher ’19
Teacher, Providence Christian Academy,
“My current career may not perfectly align with what I studied, but it still prepared me very well. Speech class teaches you how to present an idea well, a key part of teaching, no matter the subject. Knowing how to use my voice, stage presence, and body language to command a room and communicate a concept has been invaluable. I love watching new students grow their confidence and communication skills over the course of our class. Studying speech education has also given me the skills I need to help with any ‘drama’ in my church. I’ve directed multiple skits, programs, and short plays, allowing me a unique way to serve God in my church.
My teachers went above and beyond in every aspect of my degree. From day one of freshman year to graduation day, they encouraged me, prodded me, stretched me, and genuinely cared about me. I’ve even contacted teachers in the past few years since graduating. Not only did they remember me, but they also prayed for me and helped me.”
