Sketchnoting Adventures

GarageBand Explorations

Apple Academy, Cupertino, CA

I am continually looking for ways to grow as an apple educator! From attending classes at the local apple store prior to Covid or attending online sessions with Apple during the pandemic, I constantly challenge myself to learn more about the learning ideas and the tools to enact this learning as a professional and with other professionals and their students. My district provided the opportunity to apply to attend Apple Academy several years ago, but due to everything shutting down with the pandemic, I was unable to attend. This year, the Academy is starting back and I am booked to attend January 23-27, 2023.

Apple Distinguished Educator

I have applied twice for this distinction and plan to apply again the next time the window opens. During Covid, Apple has not provided this opportunity, but this January 2023, they will be opening this opportunity once again. My next steps are planning out my video to highlight how I'm making a difference in student's lives to achieve my learning goals as a potential ADE.
