Winners Announced: Thank You, Teachers!
We love teachers. Having five children, and having been a high-school English teacher myself, there is a special place in my heart for those who work with our children -- and this year more than ever!
We wish we could give fruit bowls to every teacher in the world, but since we can't, we decided to start right here at home, in St. Pete. We have such an amazing community and you can really see that when reading the comments from our nomination post. Our teachers truly make a difference.
Remember when we said we were giving away five bowls? We read every single comment, and decided to double the giveaway to 10. There was just no way to pick five teachers out of all those comments.
We decided to include teaching staff, and I love that we have on our list a swim coach, a tennis coach, a cook, a teaching assistant, a teacher-of-the-year, a day-care teacher, and so many more. What an amazing group of people who definitely deserve beautiful, fresh, organic fruit bowls.
Thank you, teachers and teaching staff, for all you do, every day, even when no one is paying attention. We see you, and we say thank you!
PS: The best way to say thank you to someone is by feeding them.
