NEW YORK (May 4, 2017) - On May 8th, Schoology, the leader in learning management systems (LMS) for education, kicks off a week-long celebration highlighting the impact of educators in their community and beyond. The celebration will take place across Schoology’s online communities, sharing stories of impactful educators and giving participants several opportunities to highlight their favorite teachers using #TeacherAppreciationWeek.

“It’s important for Schoology to celebrate educators,” said Lisa Rudge, Director of Professional Development at Schoology. “Much of the success of Schoology is due to the advocacy and enthusiasm of our users, many of whom are teachers. They refer other users, show their love for us on social media, and some of them have even come to work at Schoology to help with product development and assist clients with strategies for successful adoption throughout their organization."

Kellie Ady is Director of Instructional Strategy at Schoology and a former English teacher and District Instructional Technology Coordinator. She recently made the transition from being a Schoology educator to Schoology employee this school year and is one of 25 percent of Schoology employees that are former educators.

“Schoology truly cares about educators,” explained Ady. "I think that's reflected in how and what Schoology provides for professional growth -- opportunities for professional learning, using the platform to enhance classroom practice, collaboration with others through initiatives like the Schoology Ambassador Program and groups like Schoology Educators, and through the hiring of educators for positions at Schoology. Schoology not only values the educator voice but they also give it a place to make an impact."

During the week-long celebration, Schoology will highlight some of their internal educators and invites users and followers of their social channels to recognize their favorite teachers and the impact they’ve made.

Participants will be able to:

  • Download and send a Teacher Appreciation Week e-card to their favorite teachers
  • Join the conversation on Schoology’s blog and social channels, using event-specific hashtag #TeacherAppreciationWeek to connect with other educators who are participating
  • Participate in the #TeacherAppreciationWeek social giveaway by tweeting and tagging their favorite teacher for a chance to win a $25 gift card

“We will celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week in our district," said Cristina Toflinski, English Teacher and School Public Relations at Northwood Local Schools in Northwood, OH, “and it’s great to see a company like Schoology recognize the importance of educators in the success of their product."
