Cheers to all the teachers out there who have made an impact on the kids today!
According to "Thankyoudiva.com", the history of giving an apple to your teacher is " the US tradition of the gift of an apple seems to be particularly associated with the first day of school. This, of course, takes place in September: apple harvest time. So freshly picked apples – which are grown in every state in the continental United States – would have made a cheap and appealing gift for a nervous child to give to a new teacher.".
