Ms. Pittman, a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert, is recognized for her use of the company’s learning tools to help struggling readers succeed, and the commercial features students sharing their stories of academic triumph.

“Our community knows how inspiring our teachers are and how we’re leaders in using instructional technology to educate the emerging generation… thanks to the outstanding work of Ms. Pittman and her students, now the world will know, too,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “We appreciate our community’s support of our Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax for technology, and we’ll continue to invest those resources to, as the commercial says, ‘empower us all.’”
