Please join us in welcoming Amber Staab to Quizlet! Amber will be supporting our users as a member of our User Ops team. Amber hails from Indianapolis, Indiana, and attended Warren Central High School. She went on to study at the University of Chicago, where she graduated with a bachelor's degree in Visual Arts and a master's degree in Art History. Amber was an avid doodler in grade school, and these days she enjoys drawing and using her sewing machine.

We're very excited to have Amber at Quizlet. Read on to learn more about her:

Quizlet: Who was your most memorable teacher and why?

Amber: Mrs. Nancy Stauffer — we’re friends to this day! I was generally regarded as a “model student” in high school, but I was also restless and a bit arrogant. Most of my teachers were quite happy to give me an “A” and their compliments. She took it upon herself to help me grow in the ways that I actually needed to the most, despite their having very little to do with algebra.

Q: What was one thing you wish you could have changed about high school?

A: Honestly, I had it pretty good. That said, I wish my peers and I hadn’t been pointedly discouraged from taking art classes in favor of more purely academic ones (e.g., calculus, literature, history) in the name of “college prep.” Along similar lines, I wish we’d been encouraged to imagine our lives beyond college. I was at least halfway through it before I realized that, despite so much thought given to getting there, I’d given almost none to what I’d be doing afterward!

Q: Why did you decide to work at Quizlet?

A: I’ve spent more of my life in school than I have working at this point, and I would have used Quizlet (even though highlighters, glue sticks, scissors, and multicolor, paper flashcards still hold a special place in my heart). I can empathize with our users, and I have no trouble imagining how Quizlet came into daily use by a third of U.S. high school students without the help of a single dedicated salesperson or marketer.

Moreover, it empowers people — millions of people! Across multitudes of disciplines. Our users are studying architecture, medicine, computer science, environmental science, foreign languages, business, music... you name it! I could spend a lifetime trying to move the needle in one of these fields. Instead, at Quizlet, I have the rare pleasure of knowing that my day-to-day work facilitates advancements in all of them. Pretty cool!

Q: What's the most useful thing you've ever learned?

A: Humility. I think it’s fundamental to learning. You really do have to suffer your ignorance when you’re a beginner at something in order to grow and improve. Also, I’m surrounded by people who are smarter and more experienced than me. If I didn’t acknowledge and embrace this, I would miss the opportunity to learn from them — or collaborate with them to achieve something more ambitious than what any of us could accomplish individually.

Q: What's the most interesting article, blog or book you've read recently?

A: Finite and Infinite Games by James Carse, on a friend’s recommendation. Brian Christian has a brief review here which concludes accurately that “the book permanently inserts itself between the reader and the world, in a way that collapses rather than creates distance, like a lens, or a language.”
