Teachers lived at the school

When I was in preschool (3 or 4), we used to have a gym that we used an old dark staircase to get to. The teachers didn't want us to fall so they sang a song about keeping your hand on the railing. It went to the tune of "if you're happy and you know it" except the words were "keep your hand on the railing on the wall". My child brain thought that they were telling you to put your hand on the railing and then put it on the wall. So I was constantly switching between railing and wall. I only recently realized that they meant that the railing was on the wall.

When I was in kindergarten, my teachers occasionally mentioned Mr. Mont, the school principal. A good ways into the year, we were told Mr. Mont was dropping by the classroom for a visit. And so he did, but imagine my disappointment when he turned out to be a human... since, for some strange reason, I'd been expecting a kangaroo. I'll never know why, but up until the point I actually saw him in person, every mention of Mr. Mont conjured up the mental image of a real, live kangaroo who was led around the school on a leash.

When I was in first grade my best friend's mom was our teacher. They would always stay late after school for after school care but I just assumed that all teachers and their kids lived at the school. When I asked my friend which room she slept in she said, "You shouldn't sleep during school!" So then I figured that even though they lived at school all the time, they weren't allowed to sleep there. I believed this until 5th grade.

Apparently I believed adults were as gullible as we were! In school one day, when I was about 7, we were given the task of writing a page in our diary about what we did on the weekend. The teacher made very clear it had to be an honest and true account, however, being an imaginative child I decided to spice mine up a little. I wrote that we went to a pet shop and adopted two of every animal, including koalas, snakes, bears, and many more. I even drew pictures to go along side it. I remember saying to my friend, "She [teacher] won't know I made it up, it could really happen! Couldn't it? How would she know I made it up?" My friend agreed enthusiastically, however much to our surprise, the authenticity of my entry was indeed called into question. I remember vehemently sticking by my story and denying that it was made it up.

When I was a kid I always thought the lunch lady had had brain surgery. I could only see the line of her hair net and assumed it was a scar.

When I was in kindergarten, my teacher would always tell us to be quiet when the announcements came on because our principal could tell if we were listening. I always thought she crawled through a series of tunnels until she arrived at our classroom's PA box to deliver the announcements and watched to see who was paying attention. It wasn't until I saw the intercom system that I realized how it really worked.

They used to call professional development days "teacher's workshops" when I was in school. I though they went to actual workshops, with benches and hammers, like elves. I was always disappointed they didn't bring they made to show the kids the next day.

When I was younger, I thought the teachers actually LIVED at school. I would get totally freaked out when we would see them at the store or outside of school.

I used to think teachers lived at school. Both of my parents were teachers, but I thought they were allowed to live at home just because they had me.

Kindergarten was the first time I ever saw a white board. I didn't know what it was. So, when my teacher took a marker and started writing on the board I told her she was being bad and shouldn't write on the walls.

My parents are atheist and I thought it was something unique about our family (not that we were the only ones, just that it wasn't common). When I went to school, we had to write a few things about ourselves. One of mine was "I don't believe in God." I'm not sure how the teacher took that.

There used to be curtains that covered the underneath of the cupboards at school, I was convinced that behind those curtains was a bed that the teachers slept and lived in when we weren't at school.

I used to believe that teachers never went to the bathroom. I believed this until I saw one walk to the bathroom.

I didn't think my teachers had lives. They didn't have families and the only friends they had were the other teachers in the school.
