After all, apples are often associated with teachers.
Why are APPLES associated with teachers?

For some, especially in parts of Europe and in the U.S., it is a tradition to give apples to teachers on the first day of school.

This tradition is practiced to show appreciation to the educators of children and young people.

Why apples, and not another food?

There are many different thought about this question. One is that people commonly see the apple as a symbol of variety, change, growth and strength.

Apples symbolize variety and change because of the many types of apples in colour ranging from yellow to green to red. The different varieties of apples have unique tastes, some sweet, others tart. The growth of the apple tree, originating from a tiny apple seed, with strong branches supporting hundred of apples symbolizes growth and strength.

Teachers are educators who inspire students to enhance their understanding of a vast variety of areas of study, encouraging them to grow in knowledge and strength in an ever changing world.

Teachers need to receive the support and appreciation of parents and guardians to fulfil their role in the education of children and young people.

The tradition of "an apple for the teacher" may be a way to show this appreciation and support.

Another association of "apples" with "teachers" is a tradition from earlier centuries in which teachers were not paid enough salary to sustain their cost of living, so parents paid educators with foods like fruit. Parents would give the educators of their children apples and other fruits or potatoes. During this time apples were expensive, so compensating the teachers with them was considered a great way to show appreciation.

Whatever the origin, the association of apples and teachers is a common association in many parts of the world today.
