This paper documents my growth over the course of four months as a student teacher. Described in this work is the Massachusetts education system and my place within it. Specifically, evidence of my growth as an educator through a discussion of the six elements of CAP, candidate assessment of performance. Each of these elements is essential to effective teaching and while complete mastery is seldom met, I experienced tremendous growth in each of these areas as a result of my student teaching experience. In addition to a discussion of these elements, I have included an analysis of how my education at Worcester Polytechnic Institute influenced me as an educator as well as samples of student work, lesson plans and, student feedback.
