OK...not long ago I came out with a new apple design....which I did some "teacher" stuff with, like the shirt below...
Which illicited the following comment from one of my followers:
"I really love it!! That said, I'm so sick of traditional crafts with apples (as teacher gifts), the shirt makes me wince a little."
Which I wasn't hurt or offended by at all...in fact, I agree a little. It's overused...and when I taught I never really understood the "apple/teacher" connection (I know, I know..."an apple for the teacher"...but still).
So here's my questions (ok...I'm supposed to just ask one, so pick whichever one you want, but if you want to answer all of them that's cool, too):
Do you like the apple symbol for teaching? Or are you bored of it? What do you think would make a better teacher/education symbol? And, any suggestions for other text or quotes I could put with my apple?
