At Microsoft, we are inspired every day by the consistent innovation of dedicated educators and thoughtful leaders and their positive impact on 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 educators across 100 countries for their commitment to a culture of learning, innovation, and continuous improvement. These passionate educators joined our communities to lead digital transformation in education and worked to earn a place in the Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Expert program. Congratulations MIE Expert class of 2022-2023! See a list of educators here.
