Manteca Unified announces Microsoft Innovative Educator experts

Five Manteca Unified teachers have been selected as Microsoft Innovative Educator experts.

Tammy Dunbar (Lincoln Elementary), Christina Hansen (Stella Brockman Elementary), Rebecca Hunter (Weston Ranch High), Kristen Messer (be.Tech) and Steve Unterholzner (Sierra High) will join the more than 6,700 educators in the MIE Expert program worldwide.

“Being an MIE expert means that the world is your classroom,” Hansen said in a statement. “This amazing group of educators and innovators are available to you and your students, so that we can become global learners and leaders. No other cohort allows for the level of opportunity for myself and my students like the Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert program.”

Each year, Microsoft selects innovative educators to share ideas, try new approaches and learn from each other as a global community dedicated to improving student outcomes through technology.

According to the district, as an MIE Expert, “educators build their capacity for using technology in both the classroom and curriculum to improve student learning, advise Microsoft and educational institutions on how to integrate technology in pedagogically sound ways and be an advocate at conferences, events and trainings for how Microsoft technology can improve learning.”
