This paper talks about my time as an aspiring teacher at Doherty Memorial High School in Worcester, Massachusetts. I, myself, have always wanted to be a math teacher since childhood, and have learned under countless fantastic teachers. In high school, I was a teacher’s assistant in a Geometry class, in addition to helping my other classmates in other math courses with homework. When I heard about the Teaching Program at WPI, where I could actually teach in front of the classroom for the first time, I latched on and planned my schedule to get all of my requirements done. As the time for me to step in charge approached, I thought, “This should be easy, right? Even if Worcester Public Schools has more inner-city students…” The rest of this paper shows how it went.
