My 2015 Apple Distinguished Educator Application Reflection

Over the course of the last month, I have worked to complete my Class of 2015 Apple Distinguished Educator Application. Getting my application selected and having the opportunity to join the Apple Distinguished Educator (ADE) Program has always been toward the very top of my professional goals. It was be a honor to collaborate with some of the greatest innovators, and thought leaders in education. 

Have you ever wanted something so bad, that you actually made it harder than it needed to be? You try so hard, that you fail to meet your potential? That is how much of this process was for me. I am rarely one to overthink things. I trust my gut and go. Once I did that, I was able to create content to my self expectations. Hopefully at the end of the process, I will be able to join the Class of 2015 Apple Distinguished Educators! Good luck to all the amazing educators who submitted ADE applications.

  3. Nice job on your video! I'm sure that is a lot of work! I tried to check out your course on my ipad but the link just takes me to a blank page in itunes? It may be an error on my end, I've never tried that before. Thanks!

  4. Have you heard back on your ADE application yet?

  5. Just wondering if you have heard back on your ADE application yet...I hope you get in!
