The apple is not a symbol of the teacher directly but of the knowledge the teacher imparts to the students.

Apples have been considered a symbol of knowledge mainly due to the common belief that it was an apple that Eve pulled from the forbidden tree of knowledge to give to Adam.

It is also in this origin that the term "Adams apple" (referring to the bump sometimes seen in a males throat) came to be. The story is told that the apple became stuck in Adams throat once he realized it was wrong.
