Returning ADE

Greetings, ADE Family!

I'm thrilled to be back as an active Apple Distinguished Educator after several years outside of traditional K-12 education. Nice new place you've got here!

For those that don't know me, I'm a member of the 2003 Class of ADEs (Walker Creek Ranch, anyone?), spent several years at the Orange County Office of Education before serving as the chief executive at CUE (an educational non-profit and ISTE affiliate). I exited that role in 2017 and began consulting and working on the industry side as a software executive, including a stint at (Apple-first champion Jamf).

And now I'm back at a school district, this time as Director of Information & Technology at ABC Unified in Los Angeles County, CA.

I look forward to reconnecting with this amazing community and meeting new friends!

Best -

Mike Lawrence
