DOMAIN REFLECTIONS

NAME _MASSIMILIANO TOMMARCHI

SCHOOL HSE/HSW

ADMINISTRATOR ROBERTO TRIGOSSO

DATE 6/1/10

How has your practice evolved during the year with respect to each of the four domains of the framework for
teaching? For each domain, write a brief but insightful reflection. Refer to the component rubrics for ideas, but you
need not include each component.
Domain 1 Planning and Preparation
The advantage to have previously taught all my courses for at least one year helped me plan differently by keeping
what was useful and introducing new approaches to help achieve student learning. I had to adapt to the diversity of
my students which ranged from auditory, visual, oral and writing abilities, therefore my activities contained a bit of
each.
Domain 2 The Classroom Environment
My goal is always to create a friendly and safe learning environment. I have never experienced a number of
students this year that had a variety of allergies: in the first quarter I was forced to evacuate my class due to a bee
infestation because I had a student who is allergic to them. Needless to say my lesson turned out a bit different than
originally planned.
Domain 3 Instruction
I like to teach the language, not just grammar based, but also culture based. I try to incorporate my own
experiences having lived in Italy, into the lesson everyday. I want the students to take advantage of the fact that I
am a native speaker.
Domain 4 Professional Responsibilities
I keep a detailed record of grades, absences, detentions and parent phone calls.
Domain 4a
Maintaining Accurate
Records

Domain 4b
Communicating with
Families

Domain 4c
Contributing to
the School and
District

I consistently communicate with students families both for positive comments and to
reinforce student learning.

I was advisor to both Italian Honor Society and Club at High School East. I also coached
Hills East girls JV soccer team.

Domain 4d
Growing and
Developing
Professionally

Domain 4e
Demonstrating
Professionalism

I continue to take all positive suggestions made during observations by administrators


and suggestions by colleagues during PCP periods.

I constantly help colleagues in need, and reschedule extra help for individual students if
needed and possible.

Highlights for the 2009-2010 School Year


(highlights related to professional practice)

Definitely my 11R students both at east and west demonstrated creativity through their videos. I
am always looking forward to this topic during the year. The kids have fun and enjoy themselves
in Italian.

One Area to be Extended and/or Refined in Your Professional Practice

I need to give out more detentions. My diplomatic approach this year worked fine until May, but I
needed to give out more to reinforce my authority in the classroom.
