The purpose of this paper is to report my growth as an educator throughout my experience student teaching at Worcester Technical High School. First I will describe the educational environment of Worcester, MA, then of WT, and then of my own classes. Then I will explore the 6 Elements of the Candidate Assessment of Performance, by which teachers are judged in Massachusetts. I will show how I succeed in meeting proficient levels of all 6 elements through the use of documents used in my classroom, and through anecdotes that show the growth of myself and my students. I will conclude by highlighting how my prior education received at WPI helped inform my teaching experience.
