Linda Tyler was nominated by a student.

Ms. Tyler is the most kind hearted women her nominator has ever met. Even during hard times, she still comes to school and HOSA meetings to support her students. She always donates to those in need, and if you ever need anything, she will always do her best to help you, even if it's finacially.

She always helps with school blood drives and finds ways to get the whole school involved. In the science career cluster, she is one of her students' biggest supporters, and they all look up to her.

I've known Ms. Tyler since my sophomore year here at Hoke. I can honestly say that I have learned things from her that will stick with me forever. She is one of the hardest working pepople I know and I am honored to be her student. She has provided guidance for not only me but all of the students she has had and more. Ms. Tyler has many outstanding characteristics that I've never seen before in anyone else.

Ms. Tyler is by far my favorite teacher that I have ever had. Not only does she teach to an extraordinary level, but she also connects with the students on a personal level, even if they are not in her class. She is the most understanding, and caring teacher I have ever come into contact with, and she takes the means of her job to an entirely new level. She holds the standard for how teachers should be toward their students. Her hard work and sacrifice should not go unnoticed, which is why I believe she should receive this award.

Ms.Tyler is a fighter. Even after the tragedy she faced she did everything in her power to make sure her students education wasn't sacrificed. She searches for volunteers to make sure the practical applications of her course are rigorous and real for her students. She's humble, kind and extremely giving and we at Hoke are lucky to have her apart of our team. One Team One Goal!

Ms Tyler was a previous health team relations and biomedical technology teacher of mine.I can truly say she is the best teacher at Hoke county high.She wasn’t just one of those teachers that teach straight off of an PowerPoint presentation.She went very thorough in the lessons taught and provided hundreds of ways the students could connect with each other on a healthcare team level and truly outdo any learning level.she is never upset,as she is always in a good mood.By walking into her classroom you see her smile and it made you smile.She goes beyond her duties as a teacher,as she helped us as students get through tough times emotionally,physically,and spiritually.

I could never repay Ms. Tyler for the education and drive to becoming successful in the medical feild that she instilled in my daughter. She has been such a huge influence towards her not only in school but in my daughters personal life as well! Ms. Tyler is a very sweet woman and an outstanding teacher and mentor.

Heather Beres Posted over a year ago

Ms. Tyler is my daughters Health Science teacher. The guidance and encouragement she has shown my daughter is never ending. She reminds her every day to get a degree to support herself and that she can do anything she wants if she sets her mind to it. As a teacher Ms. Tyler deserves this Life Changer award because not only is she impacting my daughters life, but 100’s of other kids in Hoke County.

Ms.Tyler is an inspiration to me. She is a hard working woman. She is a helping hand and she also has a heart of gold. She leads her students to many opportunities and makes sure that we are on the right path.

Annyada j. Mcdonald Posted over a year ago

Ms. Tyler is a wonderful woman, she has and still does help me with my career path. When she talks to you it boosts your confidence. She has been an great guide getting me closer to my dream of becoming a nurse. One of the first steps are for me to graduate with my CNA. This leaves me with a starting point before I start college and after I graduate. She continues to push me further down this pathway, helping me with my 5 year plan and onward.

Jenelle Oxendine Posted over a year ago

Ms. Tyler a wonderful teacher always putting the students first.

Alexa G. Burnett Posted over a year ago

Ms. Tyler, to this day, has been one of the most influential people in my life. She is much more than just your average teacher. She is a mentor, a mother figure, everyone's biggest motivator, a hard working woman; quite simply she is one of the best people one will meet in their life time. She dedicates everything she has to helping those around her. She does so not only by working as a registered nurse but everyday inside and outside the classroom. She never fails to offer kind guidance whether it is school related or regards one's personal life, she is honest and kind and never hesitates to offer a helping hand even when she has a lot on her own agenda. Ms. Tyler is one of the reason's I chose a career in the health field and affirmed WHY I knew the medical field was the right choice for me. I want to be a Ms. Tyler in one's life; offer guidance, care, and a helping hand. She has made a POSITIVE impact in my life to this day and no one is more deserving of this honor than her.

Ms. Tyler has been one of the most helpful and sincere teachers I have ever had. I am a recent graduate of Hoke County High School. I am currently a freshman in my first year biology (prmedical) curriculum, and Ms. Tyler is still helping me through my academic endeavors. From being my first health science teacher to encouraging me to achieve all my greatest dreams, she has always been a great support system. I couldn’t imagine getting a full academic scholarship to North Carolina A&T State University without her help. Thank you so much Ms. Tyler.

Hayley Beres Posted over a year ago

Amber Boahn Posted over a year ago

I have known Mrs. Tyler since my freshman year of high school and I’m now a second semester freshman in college. She is the sweetest most caring woman I know. The care and compassion she shows for her students is endless. To this day I still get a call from her every so often to check up and offer her assistance in any way she could help. I often refer to her as a second mother. Whenever I was in need of school guidance or guidance in my personal life or future Mrs. Tyler was always there offering a helping hand. I truly appreciate her for that, she is a huge part in my success’s thus far and will continue to be on throughout earning my degree. When I earned my Certification as a Nursing Assistant she is the first one I called to share the news because she was one of the main reasons I was so prepared. Being president of HOSA I spent just as much time during school hours with her as I did for after school activities, also spending time together on the weekends. I learned that she is strong in her beliefs and persistent on every student getting an opportunity to further their education and become successful, often putting students needs above her own. I couldn’t think of a more deserving teacher, mother figure, and strong woman for this award.

Logan Honaker Posted over a year ago

Ms. Tyler is by far the most resolute and caring teacher I’ve had. Throughout my high school career, I spent nearly every semester learning from her and still do to this day, even though I’m now 150 miles away in college. As someone who cares deeply for her student’s wellbeing and performance, be it in the classroom, on the playing fields of varying sports, or at regional and state HOSA competitions, Ms. Tyler fully supports and motivates her students on a daily basis to be the the best and do the most that they can. Without her instruction and support, I do not believe I would be pursuing a career in the highly competitive medical field as I am today.

Jordan Sapp Posted over a year ago

Ms. Tyler has been an educational mentor for 4 years. She has always pushed me to strive and to be great. She will pull you out of class and tell you to straighten up out of love. The love for us is equivalent to the care and the passion for her job and for us as well. Every step of the way, she has pushed us to be something greater.

We all appreciate Ms. Tyler. Her sacrifices never go unnoticed. She's made a positive difference in our lives. She sees something in us that we don't see in ourselves. Ms. Tyler is by far, one of the most important people I will have in my life, to whom i often forget to say thank you to. The right teacher can change the course of your life. Thank you, for in inspiring me to be confident. Believing in myself was probably the hardest thing i ever had to do, and it still is, you taught me to do it.
