- The biggest positive outcome has been the people I have met. These connections and interactions have impacted me in so many ways — from the example others have set, the ideas I have been inspired by, the opportunities to collaborate, and the friendships I have made.
- Imposter syndrome. I am *pretty* sure everyone feels this at some stage. Whether it is terms of sharing ideas or your voice online, or finding a place within an established community of educators and leaders. I overcame this by being true to who I am as a teacher and person, being a ‘Yes, and…’ person, learning from the example set by others, realising that we all have something unique to offer, and just being brave and willing to go for it.
- In terms of thoughts and tips if applying to be an ADE: Show what makes you unique, and what drives and inspires you. And, stick to three themes in your application video as you tell your story: Transforming your Learning Environment, Evidence of Success (I think this can be the hardest one!), and Extending your Reach.
I hope that helps! Best of luck with your application. 😊
Hi Apple Education Community, As part of our reflection at the Apple Learning Academy, we were asked to write about our goals for professional learning. My professional learning goal is to become an Apple Distinguished Educator.
Current and aspiring ADEs, I have a couple❓for you…
1) What was one positive outcome or experience or “aha moment” you have had as part of your ADE journey?
2) What was a challenge or road block you faced and how did you over come it?
3) Any other tips or thoughts to share?
Thank you 😊
