What advice can you give me as a student teacher who might teach science in elementary as a first year teacher this upcoming school year?

Hello Simian, I am a student teacher as well and the best advice I can give you is to always approach each day with a smile and give it your all! When you come to create lesson plans make sure you plan it before hand and do it yourself. This will allow you to see if 1. The lesson is interesting enough for children in elementary education, 2. It will set the bar for how long the lesson will take, 3. If there are any defects within the lesson you can go and fix it before officially teaching is to the students, and most importantly have fun! Children will learn from you and look up to you but you will also learn many things from them!
