Welcome to my homepage @ mrsblanchet.net!!! I am a mathematics teacher at John Ehret High School in Marrero, LA (in the New Orleans area). Please click through to one of my sites (listed on the left) to get a more detailed look at what I do, and more importantly, how it can help make your life easier.
Visit my blog at http://blanchetblog.net for updates on the best of what I do in the classroom. With a focus on technology, PBL and hands-on learning, I have been blogging for over 3 years in the hopes that what I do may be helpful to other teachers. Check it out and don’t forget to leave a comment to let me know you stopped by!
In April 2012, I was invited to attend the Google Teacher Academy in London. There, I learned about ways to use Google tools in the classroom, connected with other innovative educators from around the world and met and discussed future collaborations with Google employees (Googlers). As a result of this training, I am now also a Google Certified Teacher. Check out my blog or contact me to learn about all the ways you can use FREE Google tools to enhance your classroom!
In cooperation with Max Ray at the Math Forum at Drexel University in Philadelphia, I am working on the PoW Planet Project starting this school year. PoW stands for “Problems of the Week”, a long-standing service offered by the Math Forum. Through the PoW Planet site and Twitter, teachers and students around the world will be tweeting, blogging, sharing their problem solving, and discussing each others’ work. If you’d like to get your students involved, you can email us to learn more about the project.
