How Teachers are Like Pineapples

My latest obsession is pineapples.  And it got me thinking, how are teachers like pineapples?  How can I teach like a pineapple? I did a little thinking and thought to myself teachers are like pineapples.

Every day teachers stand tall, we wear a crown on our head, and we are sweet on the inside. And so I made a list of what Teaching Like a Pineapple means to me.

I just loved this so much I had to put it on things for us to wear with pride. The shirts are only available for a limited time, so if you love them as much as I do you will need to order quickly.  You can also get this cute canvas bag to use as a new school bag.
