At Microsoft, we are inspired every day by the impact that dedicated educators and thoughtful leaders are making to innovate education and improve student outcomes. The last 18 months have only increased our appreciation of the critical work educators and school leaders do to help every student achieve more.

Today, we celebrate the accomplishments of more than 30,000 inspiring educators across 100 countries who are joining our communities for their commitment to a culture of learning, innovation, and continuous improvement. These educators lead digital transformation in education through the Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Expert program. We are inspired by these passionate educators who have worked to earn a place in this program. Congratulations MIE Expert class of 2022-2023! See a list of educators here.
