Last week we received over 5,000 entries to our Teacher Appreciation Week Giveaway. Teachers from all 50 states were nominated with thoughtful testimonials from students, colleagues, partners, and parents. Thank you to everyone who participated!
We're happy to announce that the winner and recipient of Quizlet Teacher upgrades for their entire school faculty, plus a school visit from Quizlet's founder is...
Kelly Doyle from Lowery Freshman Center in Allen, Texas!
Ms. Doyle, described as "inspiring," "amazing," and "the most positively engaging teacher I've ever had," received nominations from sixteen of her students, including:
"Ms. Doyle makes biology fun! She uses Quizlet to help encourage the students and to help them learn biology much more efficiently. She is creative, eager to help, a positive person, VERY smart, and super enthusiastic! We are grateful for Ms. Doyle!" - Teresa Gill
"Ms. Doyle is the best teacher I've ever had. She makes a lot of Quizlet practices which really helps!! I love talking to her after school too, I always come after school when I'm stressed and Ms. Doyle makes me happy and calm again. She's the best teacher ever!" - Marit van Megesen
"I feel that Ms. Doyle should be nominated because, for one, she is always able to find a way to make Biology content simple, easy to understand, and fun. Secondly, she always finds ways for her class periods to compete and that gives each class a new vibe of team spirit and openness (without even meaning to). Finally, she is always there for each and every one of us, and goes out of her way to make your day." - Phong Dang
We also wanted to recognize a few stellar teachers who received a very large number of nominations, and who will be receiving Quizlet shirts and stickers as tokens of our appreciation:
Congrats, Ms. Doyle — and a sincere thank you to every single teacher who was nominated for making such an incredible, positive impact on people's lives. Thank you for all that you do!
