The advice I'd give is to think about good teaching. Share lesson goals and objectives, success criteria, and important vocabulary. Use visuals. Make sure there isn't too much of you talking; give plenty of time for student talk and independent work. Integrate technology in meaningful ways if possible. Be aware of your state standards and make sure the lesson clearly addresses those. Perhaps most important? Be yourself. Connect with the people in the room. Don't talk about how you care about kids. Show it.
