Happy Teacher Appreciation Week from Quizlet

Quizlet in Education & Teachers ·
Teacher-appreciation-updated.png

Here at Quizlet, we believe teachers deserve our appreciation every single day. So obviously, we’re here for Teacher Appreciation Day, especially this year.

Teachers have gone above and beyond, pivoting between remote learning, hybrid models and masked in-person lessons. All the while, they have done their very best to engage students and build the next generation of thinkers through Zoom lessons or plexiglass.

We know there’s nothing we can do that will equal the monumental effort teachers have made this year. But in the spirit that nothing is better than homemade, we wrote you a poem celebrating the awesomeness of teachers. We hope you enjoy it.

Pandemics and academics are not a good mix
It was up to our teachers to offer a fix
So let’s celebrate them, they’re doing their best
Giving lessons, telling stories, devising the tests

They’re up early each morning, not sure what’s ahead
“Is today a remote day or a hybrid instead?
It’s hard to prepare for this class in advance
Oh wait, it’s IN-PERSON! Better put on some pants!”

Teaching kids during Covid is a challenging task
“Suzie, what did you say? Can you take off your mask?”
An hour of this could make anyone grouchy
Thank goodness for the vaccine and dear Doctor Fauci!

Yes, the heroes are many in this challenging time
The doctors and nurses, the folks on the line
And our teachers are right there, heroic as well
Finding new ways to reach, to teach and excel

Lots of schools have reopened and kids are in class
Our teachers are happy because this virus will pass
You see, Zoom’s not a classroom and remote can’t replace
A hug or a handshake, a well-earned embrace

We appreciate teachers, we salute what they do
Underpaid, overworked yet they always pull through
They rise to the challenge and answer the call
They’re a reason why “normal” will come in the Fall

It’s time to applaud them and laud them with praise
But that’s not enough time to give them a raise!

    It has been a challenging year to say the least, but for those of us who enjoy teaching it has allowed us to think outside of the box. Congratulations to all the teachers around the world! May you finish your year strong knowing that your reward is in seeing the smile of a student saying, "I got it!"

    Educators, students, and the parents were working together to make the learning affect and success.
    I also appreciate the para who worked hard by zoom in with the students out of their time pay to hep the students finish assignments and be able to pass the class..
    I also truly thanks to the scientist, doctors, nurses who work in medical field. They have had working even harder and longer hours than anyone else. They are produce the vaccine to prevent the virus spread. But, at least their paid aren't low as educators.

  171. vruiter

    Thank you for the poem. Regarding printing of Quizlet cards:

    I am writing again about the new "streamlined" printing option on Quizlet.
    I am a Resource Teacher and I work with students with learning disabilities. They often need to review with a parent/partner. The hard copies of the Quizlet flashcards worked so well for them. They have difficulty studying independently. The new streamlined printed version of the Quizlet cards do not look like flashcards and will not work as well for my students. PLEASE asked your tech people to restate what was previously provided regarding the print options. Now, there is just one option.

  172. Rachel_Svec TEACHER

    They’re up early each morning, not sure what’s ahead
    “Is today a remote day or a hybrid instead?
    It’s hard to prepare for this class in advance
    Oh wait, it’s IN-PERSON! Better put on some pants!”

    This just made me laugh so hard. Thank you for the poem and the appreciation.

  177. magrans TEACHER

    I like the the rhyme it will make for a good Rap. Not too sure I want to give Fauchi too much credit though, yet I can see where the rhyming was needed there.

  178. Colleen457 TEACHER

    Very clever- Quizlet has been a good partner to us during this challenging time. A little humor often conveys some true moments as well.... The light is beginning to shine folks:)
