Apple with Quill
Apple with Quill
The quintessential symbol for a teacher, the apple, along with a quill, together representing a teacher of writing and/or literature.
A teacher (also called a school teacher) or educator is a person who provides education for students.
The apple is the traditional symbol of the teaching profession. In the past, the community would take it upon themselves to house and feed teachers in exchange for teaching their children. Apples were a tasty treat that soon became the ultimate symbol of this relationship.
The role of teacher is often formal and ongoing, carried out at a school or other place of formal education. In many countries, a person who wishes to become a teacher must first obtain specified professional qualifications or credentials from a university or college. These professional qualifications may include the study of pedagogy, the science of teaching. Teachers, like other professionals, may have to continue their education after they qualify, a process known as continuing professional development. Teachers may use a lesson plan to facilitate student learning, providing a course of study which is called the curriculum.
A teacher's role may vary among cultures. Teachers may provide instruction in literacy and numeracy, craftsmanship or vocational training, the arts, religion, civics, community roles, or life skills.
A teacher who facilitates education for an individual may also be described as a personal tutor, or, largely historically, a governess.
In some countries, formal education can take place through home schooling. Informal learning may be assisted by a teacher occupying a transient or ongoing role, such as a family member, or by anyone with knowledge or skills in the wider community setting.
