An Apple for the Teacher by dmrams

An Apple for the Teacher


This morning a student secretly placed this apple and note on my desk while I was at my door greeting students!! I can honestly say in the 20 years I have taught this is maybe only the second time a student has actually given me an apple!! Soooo sweet!! At first no one would admit the kind gesture and after class I found a note on my desk that read "I'm glad you liked the apple". After school one of my students stopped by and finally told me she was the "culprit"!! My morning wasn't the best so it was a welcome surprise!!

*** sorry I haven't commented lately on everyone's picture--I have had soooo much grading to do--promise I will catch up this weekend!!****
How nice was that! What a great compliment! Hope your Friday is great followed with a peaceful weekend...grading and all. Sweet shot!

Something like that just lights up your day, no matter how grey it might be. Don't worry about being behind with posting comments. We all understand.

what a sweet surprise from a sweet student!! i love that she was hesitant in revealing herself--it's extra sweet to give a blessing without expecting any recognition in return.
as a side note, my boys take an apple to their teacher every year on the first day of school! (:

When I was teaching in the parochial school system, I had one senior who's dad was a cigar smoker. Kid brought me a good stogy at least once a week!

Ahhhh, very sweet. I thought teachers were tired of getting apples, had no idea that perhaps they really don't get them! What a great uplifting gesture from your student. :)

That is just lovely ... in over twenty years as a teacher .... I never got an apple!! Now parishioners bring all sorts of things .... fresh trout are high as a favourite!
