My question is more for help with teaching method or public speaking. In my teaching, or public speaking, I have a tendency to use the phrase "you know" a bit too much. How can I improve on this, and what recommendations would have.
I bet you are a good teacher, but just a little nervous. There are three things I could suggest. First, practice a speech before a mirror for 15 minutes every day all by yourself - without the "you knows." Second, know your material very well before you present it.
Rehearse it often. Third, have a friendly someone in your class raise their hand each time you say, "you know." A fourth suggestion, relax and have fun while you teach.
