At Microsoft, we believe that technology alone cannot build 21st century skills for students. We believe in the power of the educator, and the impact educators can have when they are brought together and recognized for their achievements. Each year, Microsoft selects innovative educator experts (MIE Experts) to be part of this exclusive global community who are paving the way for their peers to share ideas, try new approaches and learn from each other. Educators such as Julie Hembree -- a library media specialist in Sammamish, Washington -- joined the Expert Educator and found the program helped her connect with educators around the globe and share ideas on how to integrate technology into teaching.
