Mrs. Rae Named Apple Distinguished Educator
Mrs. Rae was notified yesterday that she has been named an Apple Distinguished Educator for her visionary use of Apple technology in the classroom. She is one of just 75 teachers chosen nationwide, and has been awarded a trip to Miami, Florida in July to collaborate with fellow Apple educators.
“The Apple Distinguished Educator (ADE) Program began in 1994, when Apple recognized K-12 and higher education pioneers who are using a variety of Apple products to transform teaching and learning in powerful ways. Today it has grown into a worldwide community of over 2,000 visionary educators and innovative leaders who are doing amazing things with Apple technology in and out of the classroom. Apple is pleased to welcome Liane Rae to the ADE Class of 2015. (4/23/2015)
