Goulet, John A.


Although I am majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering, I have always hoped to teach at some point in my career. Being able to complete WPI's required Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP) by taking part in the school's Teacher Preparation program was one of the main reasons I decided to attend WPI. After completing 75 hours of observation, and 150 hours of teaching in an eighth grade math class at Forest Grove Middle School in Worcester, MA, I will be able to earn an initial Massachusetts teaching license. This experience has been very rewarding, and has solidified my hope of someday becoming a secondary math teacher. This report documents my experience, and provides sample quizzes, worksheets, and lesson plans that I created during my time at Forest Grove.
