Marcie Hebert, of St. Joan of Arc Catholic School in LaPlace, has earned certification as a Google for Education Innovator.

The program began with an Innovation Academy held Feb. 24-26 at Google headquarters in Mountain View, California. There, the program’s 34 participants discovered how to unlock creativity, translate insight into solutions, experiment rapidly and build an effective innovation culture in schools and organizations.

Participants came away with practical approaches, valuable tools and techniques, and the beginnings of an Innovation Project. This project will drive change in education, impact educators and students, and be documented for other educators to follow.
