A quote that's relatable to teachers, coaches & parents alike.

It definitely takes an immense amount of patience, calmness and fortitude to instil values that we want to see in our young charges.

This year, we have crafted this quote in 2 designs - heart and apple respectively. 

Now if you've been wondering what's the connection between teachers and apple, we've extracted from for your reading.

The first stems from the biblical story of Adam and Eve. Here, the “Tree of Knowledge,” from which Eve eats the forbidden fruit, is often depicted as an apple tree. The apple, therefore, is the fruit of knowledge, making it a fitting gift for a teacher.

Another theory harkens back to less formal times in schoolhouse history. On America’s western frontier, for example, “families whose children attended schools were often responsible for housing and feeding teachers,” according to a PBS special, titled “Frontier House, Frontier Life,” and noted in Smithsonian. In these small towns, students often helped maintain the schoolhouse as well, even coming in on Saturdays to help clean it up. In that tradition, an apple for the teacher could be considered a sweet token of appreciation. 

Each coaster will be packed in padded kraft envelop unsealed, and you can let your little one doodle on the envelop before gifting.
