For the linguistically curious, “lagniappe” or “la gniappe” is Cajun French roughly meaning “a little something extra”, “a small, inexpensive gift”, “bonus”. In the market, it often took the form of a merchant adding a few extra items to an order at no charge to make the customer feel special. Ultimately, it may have come from American Spanish, la ñapa, meaning “gift” or “a little more”.)

Alors, voilà des lagniappes enseignants pour faire vous plaisir!
