Even though you think you are hidden, I see you. Don't be like this gecko, feeling like he can't be seen. When we have class discussions, you may not raise your hand. You may not look up. You may stare at the floor, hoping not to be noticed. But everyone knows you are here.
Maybe you are afraid your answer will be wrong. Maybe you are afraid someone will laugh at your opinion or think you are dumb. Maybe you are just quiet by nature.
Please do me a favor. Take a chance. Speak out. Raise your hand. Share your thoughts and opinions. Everyone will benefit by your participation. Classmates will learn from hearing your ideas. And you will learn more, too.
