Goulet, John A.


This paper will discuss my experience as a student teacher fulfilling my teaching practicum at Worcester Technical High School. It was the capstone experience in the Teaching Preparation Program, which will lead to my Massachusetts Teaching License in Physics. I will outline the culture in the school setting I taught. I will present and prove my competency in the six essential elements of Candidate Assessment Performance (CAP) on which I was evaluated. I will relate my background and WPI education to my preparedness for teaching. I will describe my classroom environment and the flow of a day. I will conclude on how this experience has helped me grow as a professional and an integral person.
