This week, it's an easy choice. Jessie Hester is a teacher that I found because of Matt Vaudrey. My students had just completed a "Choose Your Own Assessment" for triangle congruences and one student decided that she wanted to draw a dreamcatcher. A dreamcatcher? Yes, a dreamcatcher. I was blown away. Then, because the Internet is a powerful place, Vaudrey stumbled onto a Desmos design that one of Mrs. Hester's students created.
Professionally, she's making some pretty amazing things. Now I'm not going to pretend to say that I've downloaded her chevron patterned lesson planning book, but it's awesome that she's willing to give it (and other ideas that she's pounced on) away for free. If you're interested in how to set up interactive notebooks, get in touch with Jessie. If you're interested in creating unique lesson planning guides, get in touch with Jessie. If you're interested in creating math stations, get in touch with Jessie. If you're interested in being a better teacher, get in touch with Jessie.
My goal, in one way or another, is to learn how to be better at what I do from Mrs. Hester. Hopefully you'll join me.
Happy Dreamcatcher Fishing
