“My mother’s philosophy is, ‘Take the picture.’ My philosophy is, ‘Take the picture and transform it!’”
Meredith Blaché is an instructor for the Multimedia Design and Production program at Lake Washington Institute of Technology. The move to higher education comes after 16 years working in various positions in K–12 schools, most recently as an instructional technology specialist coaching teachers and working with them to integrate technology into their classrooms. She also teaches photography, Adobe Photoshop, and Lightroom evenings and weekends at South Seattle Community College. She has conducted workshops at many educational conferences around the country.
Her most exciting life experience occurred when she took a six-month leave of absence to help two U.S. Virgin Island schools integrate technology into their curriculums.
Blaché also runs her own photography business. Her parents, who are both professional photographers, instilled in her a passion for photography, and her interest in the field was reborn with the growth of digital photography.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in information technology and a post K–12 teaching certificate in CTE/OTE.
