How could Microsoft help improve my teaching?

Microsoft "can help me teach better" by funding my trip to Washington, D.C. for NECC 2009...of course, Microsoft has already helped me by providing...

* office software which harnesses students' creativity and productivity
* unparalleled lesson plans & templates for teaching about that software
* site licenses for refurbished, donated machines to make them network compliant and update the software
* a secure way to communicate with parents and students via our Exchange server
* a free, html-based email service that I have been using for more than ten years now with ample storage space for the increasingly large files I am sent and send
* professional development opportunities for educators to visit Redmond and learn more about best practices in technology integration

I am always happy to help our students explore the functionality of the Microsoft Office productivity suite because I know that will be the standard for workplace and higher ed. as well.
