Hi,
Im a 1st Kyu goin for Shodan in December. But would like to teach to help my training for shodan. Our school has alot of classes and a rotation schedule on Saturdays for newer instructors to teach. This is where I will start and would like to have as many opinions as possible.
Thank you in advance...
Two simple advices

1 - teach as your teacher does.
--------------------------------------------------

Teaching M.A. is an art onto itself.
So, as you start, I recommend you to do it in the same way as any other M.A. excercise - emulate your teacher to the best of your ability.

This is also better for the students - they are used to a certain way of teaching and explenations.

2 - Teach only things you know well
------------------------------------------------------
Do not experiment, and do not deviate from the curriculum you know well. The students come to learn from you, not to be part of an experiment.
If you have a new idea, check it! But, do your checking somewhere else, and not with your class.

BR
Amir
