During the Fall Semester of 2016, I served as a student teacher at Doherty Memorial High School in Worcester, Massachusetts. This teaching practicum counted as my Interdisciplinary Qualifying Project for Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). The focus of this paper is to discuss my growth as an educator in the six essential elements of CAP, Candidate Assessment Performance. Meeting proficiency in the standards of well-structured lessons, adjustment to practice, meeting diverse needs, safe learning environment, high expectations, and reflective practice is necessary to becoming a licensed teacher in Massachusetts. I demonstrated proficiency in all six, and I elaborate on the strategies and methods I employed to achieve this.
