I've been having a frog in my throat for three days, a big frog, and i nearly lost my voice, coz i gave a 12-period lesson yesterday, i started my teaching from 8:30 am to 8:30 p.m, poor man, me. before this, i got a cold, a little cold, but after i talked, talked in the classroom, my voice gradullay became less clearly. Have you had a frog in your throat? when and why? thanks for your attention.

I don't like frogs in my throat and I don't like them on my plant pots either. There is a big frog sitting where my tea plant should have been and I allowed it to sit there when I discovered that his wife sits beneath him under the sawdust. Could you check if you're missing a frog or two? Cheers!!

I experienced similar situation just like you. When I was in my student teaching field in high school class I always experience such kind. I am teaching more than 300 student a day. It was 5 classes and on each class I had 70 students.Teaching in high school is so difficult.Aside from doing lesson plans and visual aids, I must also know how to deal with the students, especially those naughty and noisy ones. Sometimes I have to be angry first and keep quiet just for them to be quiet.I even got sick because of my throat. That is why the doctor told me not to abuse myself on too much talking to my class or else I will got a big problem regarding my throat. I am planning to apply for a teaching position this school year. I am thinking of buying a wireless microphone to aid me in my profession. I believe that this will a great help to me. If I have that, then I not need to force myself too much in speaking loudly. In addition to that, it will also give a big help with the students because all of them will be able to hear me clearly. Moreover,they will also be able to learn effectively.
