What do I tell a conference group?

So, this afternoon I’m hosting my student teacher’s conference group to show them my classroom and answer questions about teaching. I always get nervous right before I host a group– I want to give them thoughtful, helpful, and amazing advice that is practical for their teaching… So, how do impart what I know or the most important things I know about teaching in an hour long session.

Last time I hosted, I showed the prospective teachers my creative behavior plans. They were engaged and excited about it, but I wonder how much they think about that now. I wonder if they got my message that all children want to do well and can do well as long as they are given the right environment. Is it helping them now?

I guess we’ll see how it goes tonight… Reflections to come. Maybe I’ll also give them a few questions to answer that I can post later.
