Are you an educator who is constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible in your classroom?
Are you searching for an amazing professional learning community that will help you 24/7/365?
Look no further than the Microsoft Innovative Educator Program!
What is the MIE Program? In a word … it's a FAMILY!
For the last 6 years, I have been a proud member of the Microsoft Innovative Educator family. It has been one of the best professional communities that I have ever been a part of and it has allowed me and my students to experiences that I could never have imagined.
I would love to take a moment today and invite YOU, in fact, your entire school to become either an MIE or Showcase School this summer. Applications are now available but will be closing very soon on July 15.
Luckily for you, it's pretty simple to self-nominate yourself for the program.
