If, like me, you keep meaning to apply to the Apple Distinguished Educator program, but never seem to get around to it, now's the time! Apple just opened up the process for the 2013 class of ADE's here. The deadline in the US is January 9th, earlier in Asia. Aside from the written application, you need to complete a two minute video, but a quick YouTube search will give you plenty of examples--the sample below manages to be both inspiring and intimidating at the same time!
I'm applying this year. There's nothing like public declarations to guarantee embarrassment if you're not one of the Elected 200! : ) But it's a good process to re-assess your career arc and set some goals for the future.
