Marcia Daley-Savo Recognized as Microsoft Innovative Educator for the Fourth Time

Marcia Daley-Savo’s sixth graders like to talk about their favorite educational tools. They agree that is the most fun but are divided as to if OneNote or Padlet is more useful. Daley-Savo’s effective use of technology in the classroom is why she has been recognized as a Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Expert for the fourth year in a row.

"I’m all in for anything that encourages students to read."

One of things Daley-Savo is most excited about for the new school year is encouraging her students’ love of reading with a new digital tool that gives them agency and voice. 

“Students will share their responses to what they’re reading using Flipgrid,” said Daley-Savo. “It’s a new platform on which they can record and share short videos. I’m all in for anything that encourages students to read. If you can read, you can do anything.”

“Mrs. Daley-Savo’s connections outside of the building and district continue to strengthen the experience for students and teachers at John Jay Middle School and the Katonah-Lewisboro School District,” said Principal Jeffrey Swiatowicz. “I am so pleased that Microsoft continues to recognize the time and effort she puts into staying on the cutting edge of teaching.”
